Happy Mother’s Day was celebrated across the country on Sunday, May 9 to honour mothers and their precious role in our lives, reported 24NewsHD TV channel.

Mother’s Day is celebrated every second Sunday of the month of May in almost 50 countries including Pakistan. The day found its origin in the US when a woman named Anna Jarvis wanted the day to be celebrated in honour of her own mother who expressed such a desire.

In Pakistan people celebrated this day with reverence by giving gifts to their mothers, extending to them good wishes and sending cards, flowers and cakes.
