Mother’s Day – Speech 1.
Greetings to all the students and teachers who have gathered here. On the occasion of this beautiful morning, I am here to talk about Mother’s Day. Of all the relationships that we hold, the mother is the most divine and the first one that we have. Mother’s day is a day dedicated to the appreciation and celebration of motherhood.
Mother’s day is celebrated worldwide on the second Sunday of the month of May every year. It is a day observed to honour the role and influence that mothers have in the society.
This day was a result of the initiative taken by Anna Jarvis in the early years on the 1900s. This day is often popularly celebrated as mother’s day but there are also other days dedicated to mothers in different local cultures. Many countries actually continue their old traditions. However today, mother’s day has become a commercial holiday.
The traditions of this day include wishing mothers, not just birth mothers but also other women who have been a maternal figure. This represents the idea that all women play an unique role as mothers in bringing up their children and also influencing the future of society. Children give gifts to their mother which can be tangible things bought from shops or other items made by them. They also give mothers an experience like breakfast in bed or cook for them during the day to show their love and affection.
The uniqueness of the day lies in the celebration of motherhood. It is not just one’s own mother but all of womankind who has been mothers and has shaped individuals. It is an expression of the gratitude towards mothers. But today, it has become commercialized. Even Anna Jenkins has felt that the idea behind the holiday has been disturbed by commercialization.
I would like to end this speech with a small request on my behalf. The spirit of motherhood has to respected and cherished. But this does not require expensive presents. It needs a genuine appreciation of the love that we have for our mothers. Giving them something that is close to their heart and reflect that we care is a better way to celebrate the day.

Mother’s Day – Speech 2.
First of all, I would like to greet all the respected teachers and my dear students. I will deliver a speech on Mother’s day. Mothers are a gift from God. No one can deny the love and affection that is being shown by mothers. The national day to pay tribute to all the mothers around the world is celebrated in the second week of March.
Mothers show unconditional love to their children and to protect them they cross every barrier in their life. This day was first celebrated in the western world where children used to visit their mothers in old houses.
Just always think of the pain your mothers face from the time of your birth to your growth, education and all other essential stuff. She leaves her stuff and tries to provide the best to her children. Never doubt the love of a mother. So mother’s day emphasizes on the rights of a mother.
Now, this day is almost celebrated all over the world. Children give surprise gifts to their mothers. They quit their work on this day and spend all the time with their beloved mother. It’s a way to thank your mothers for all the work she did in your life.
We often forget to admire the sacrifices she has done throughout her life of motherhood. Sometimes we even ignore them thinking that we have grown up now and I got the right to ignore someone like our mother. But she never reciprocates our behavior. She always loves us with all her heart no matters what kind of behavior we offer to them. So, it’s our duty to behave more decently and responsibly with our mother.
She is the reason you are in this world and everything precious you received is because of your mother. For me and I’m sure for everyone else her smile is the most precious moment and stuff. Everyone feels completed and relaxed in her presence and there is no substitute for it. Every luxury is left behind due to this bond. Child-mother bond is inseparable. It’s one of the purest bonds in the world. It cannot be replaced by any other relation. I hope you liked my speech.
