Mothers' Day is celebrated as a day set aside to bring special honor to mothers. The actual day is different throughout various parts of the world, but most commonly it is celebrated in either March, April or May.
People in Jordan celebrate Mothers' Day on March 21 at the beginning of spring to symbolize pureness, fertility, and because spring brings with it nice feelings.
Women in general, but especially mothers, hold a high position in both Islam and Christianity. Both religions command kindness, respect and obedience to parents with special emphasize and preference to mothers.
"Honor your father and mother, which is the first commandment with promise." (Ephesians 6:2)
