Over 40 countries on Earth celebrate Mother’s Day on the first Sunday of May. It was first celebrated in its modern rendition on the 15th of May, 1962 at the Andrews Methodist Episcopal Church. The white carnation is the symbol of the event. It originated in ancient Greece, as a festival dedicated to the Greek Mother Goddess Rhea. It is today celebrated as an appreciative gesture towards mothers everywhere. They do so much for their children. They raise, clothe them, feed them and sow the seeds of thought in their mind. Without the foundation of learning provided by a mother, it would be difficult to condition a child to learn. We at the St Francis Business School observe and celebrate this day with a deep sense of gratitude for mothers everywhere.
