Happy Mother's Day ...

Mother's Day is a day honouring mothers, celebrated on various days in many places around the world. It complements Father's Day, the celebration honouring fathers.

The United States celebrates Mother's Day on the second Sunday in May. In the United States, Mother's Day was loosely inspired by the British day and was imported by social activist Julia Ward Howe after the American Civil War.

Zum ersten Mal wurde der Muttertag 1914 in den USA als nationaler Feiertag begangen.
Der Muttertag hat seinen Ursprung in der Frauenbewegung in
England und Amerika.
