The origins of Mother’s Day differ from country to country. In Bolivia, for example, the day commemorates a specific battle during the Bolivian War of Independence during which many female fighters were killed. In Israel, it honours Henrietta Szold who rescued Jewish children from the Nazis. In France, Mother’s Day celebrations stem from the early 1900s when the government was concerned with falling birth rates and so it praised the mothers of large families.

Around the world, mothers are treated to flowers, gifts and cards.┬áIf you want to make your mum feel extra special this Sunday, then send her one of our lovely Mother’s Day ecards and it will reach her instantly, wherever she may be in the world.
