In different culture there are the different opinion about Happy Mother's Day. Some say that it is a celebration of her mother’s birthday, and the date of the Mother's Day 2017 around the world is different.
The earliest known Mother’s Day originated in ancient Greece. Mothers usually receive gifts from the children on this day; according to most people, carnations are considered to be one of the most suitable flowers for their mothers.
Originally the American Mother's Day was launched by Anna Jarvis (1864-1948), who was unmarried for the rest of her life. Anna Jarvis was kind and compassionate, and she proposed to set up a memorial day to commemorate the mothers. But her wish had not been fulfilled by the time she died, and Anna Jarvis’s favorite carnation became the symbol of the American Mother’s Day.
