母亲节的故事 from  www.ebigear.com

今天是国际母亲节。你知道母亲节是谁最先提议设立的?你知道母亲节在美国是那一年定为法定节日的吗?是那位美国总统宣布母亲节为法定节日的?

这篇故事“Let's honor mothers and fathers!” 会告诉你这一切......

Let's Honor Mothers and Fathers!

Mother's Day is celebrated in US. It is on the second Sunday in May. It is a day to honor mothers. On that day mothers usually receive flowers and cards. On the cards, children all write,“Thanks, Mom”,“To the best mother in the world” and so on.

Where did the idea for the holiday come from? We should thank Miss Anna M Jarvis. It is she who brought up the idea of having such a day. She lived in West Virginia. Her Mother died on May 9, 1905. On the anniversary after her mother's death, she invited some friends to informal memorial meeting.

In 1907, a church service was held on her mother's death anniversary, Miss Anna M Jarvis' love for her mother moved other people. Besides, she wrote letters to important person suggesting a public holiday to honor all mothers. In 1913, the United States Congress agreed that the second Sunday in May be made Mother's Day. Finally, the decision was announced by President Wilson.

On Mother's Day, children give gifts to their mothers or the whole family go for an out. They try to do whatever is nice for their mothers. Then there is also Father's Day in the United States that is on the third Sunday in June. People try to honor all the fathers as well.

向母亲和父亲致敬!

在美国,人们在五月的第二个星期天庆祝母亲节。这天是纪念母亲的日子。在那一天,母亲们通常会收到花朵和卡片。孩子们在卡片上写着“谢谢您,妈妈,”“献给世界上最好的母亲”等话语。

母亲节是怎么产生的呢?我们得感谢安娜.M.贾维丝小姐,是她提出了确立这么一天为节日的想法。她居住在西弗吉尼亚。她母亲逝世于1905年5月9日,在她母亲逝世周年纪念日那天,她邀请了一些朋友来参加一次非正式的悼念会。1907年,在她母亲逝世周年纪念日,教堂举行了仪式来悼念她母亲。

安娜.M.贾维斯小姐对母亲的爱感动了其他人。此外,她还写信给重要人士,倡议确立一个公共节日来纪念所有的母亲。1913年,美国国会决定将五月的第二个星期天定为母亲节。最后,威尔逊总统宣布了这一决定。

在母亲节,孩子们送礼物给他们的母亲,或者全家出游。他们尽量做到让母亲满意。

然而,在美国也有父亲节。那是在六月的第三个星期天。人们也设法向所有的父亲致敬。
