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.

Mother’s Day – Speech 3
Dear fellow students and teachers. My speech today will be about Mother’s Day and why we must celebrate it. I feel very proud of having the great task to speak about all the mothers of the world. This day is being celebrated in most countries of the world just like here. Many events, speeches and celebrations take place in honor of all mothers and their importance to individuals and to society.
The mother is the closest relationship a child will ever have. Even as an adult this link between mother and child is very strong. A mother is the first influence a child has in its life. She cares for it and nurtures it with love and care. She provides unconditional love and respect. The life of a person as an infant depends on his mother for breastfeeding it and taking care of its needs. Psychologists have also stated the importance of the mother figure to all children and their future life.
A mother is the first care person for her child. She will feed it and take care of its everyday needs. Will dress her and take her to school with care and then cook the meal for the everyday lunch. Most children also study their homework with the help and guidance of their mother. A mother will also take care of her child while in need.
Apart from catering its needs, a mother is also the primary source of education for the child. We first learn how to behave and what is right and wrong from our mothers. She also teaches us how to be good and useful to society, how to understand the world around us. She also advises us on our everyday matters, providing us with her valuable guidance. Since she is the person that cares the most for us, she is always advising what’s best for us.
She will also continue to love and help her child even when it reaches adulthood. No matter how old we are, our mother will still be there for our needs. In many cases, a mother will continue to help and advise her child even in adult life and provide emotional support. In our good times and successes, she will be the happiest and proudest of all.
Every person has this special relationship with his or her mother and so have I. I feel very proud of my mother and her devotion to us, her children. She is there for my every need and loves me unconditionally without expecting anything in return. She supports the whole family by working and then comes back home to prepare lunch. Whenever I have a personal problem I know she is the best person to advise me and always ask her. In that case, she always finds time for me no matter how busy she is. It is very clear that her children and her family in general is her priority in life.
I feel very proud of my mother. And in her face, I see and celebrate the mothers of all over the world. Because nurturing and caring for children is the most difficult task to do. It requires hard work and dedication. The role of a mother doesn’t stop when the child matures, she is always there and responsible for its well-being.
I would like to say how important I find that we celebrate Mother’s Day today. We owe so many things to our mothers that we must be always grateful to them and celebrate them every day. We must honor their sacrifices for us and respect their love and feelings. I am very proud of my mother, her love and devotion to me. Every one of us should be, never stop loving them and never forget what we owe to them. They are responsible for our well-being, our happiness and even our very life. For all that we must celebrate Mother’s Day every year and pay them our respects.
