So today is Mother's Day. What is special about todays Mother's Day, its a socially distance Mothers Day.

So when did Mothers Day get started
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mother%27s_Day_(United_States)#History

Mother's Day in the United States is an annual holiday celebrated on the second Sunday in May. Mother's Day recognizes mothers, motherhood and maternal bonds in general, as well as the positive contributions that they make to society. It was established by Anna Jarvis, with the first official Mother's Day celebrated at St. Andrew's Methodist Church in Grafton, West Virginia, on May 10, 1908.

And you got Fathers Day

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Father%27s_Day_(United_States)

Father's Day is a celebration honoring fathers and celebrating fatherhood, paternal bonds, and the influence of fathers in society. The tradition was said to be started from a memorial service held for a large group of men who died in a mining accident in Monongah, West Virginia in 1907. It was first proposed by Sonora Dodd of Spokane, Washington in 1909. It is currently celebrated in the United States annually on the third Sunday in June.

Grandparents Day serves to honor and recognize the contributions of grandparents in our lives. Grandparents are a society and a family's ties to its past as they pass on important values, beliefs and ideals to future generations. Their wisdom and love are recognized every year on the first Saturday after Labor Day in September

Why are days set to honor them? I guess we set a day aside to honor them because we love them, but what do we do the other 364 Days of the Year?

This is also a reason why we dont have a Childrens Day in the US:

    Historically in Europe it had nothing to do with your mother. It actually referred to the day you were supposed to revisit your mother church where you were first christened.

    I had no idea there was a grandparents day. All my grandparents are dead though so I guess it doesn't really matter.
