When we think about love, the only unconditional love that comes to mind is mother’s love.

Although the celebration of Mother's Day dates back to ancient Greece, the holiday gained a deeper perspective after the death of Anna Jarvis’s mother, and her efforts towards the vital recognition of commemorating motherhood.

Mother's Day is celebrated in every culture to honour mothers and the sacrifices they make for their children.
