National Mother Goose Day is an annual celebration held on May 1st. Childhood is a wonderful memory for anyone as it is filled with so many exciting things. With no further thought, all of us have grown up listening to lots of fairy tales and rhythmic rhymes as a child. It’s your parent or grandparent who has entertained you with lots of different stories and songs. Besides them, there is another personality that has made you listen to a collection of fairy tales and nursery rhymes. You have guessed it probably and is none other than the well-talented Mother Goose. National Mother Goose Day is created to celebrate Mother Goose, an extremely talented storyteller, and the role she has played at your younger age.
“A man of words and not of deeds is like a garden full of weeds.” – Mother Goose
History of National Mother Goose Day
The National Mother Goose Day has been celebrated since the year 1987. Gloria T. Delamar was found to be the creator of this Day. Mother Goose Day has been published in the book named Mother Goose; From Nursery to Literature by Gloria. The fun celebration Day aims to remind each one of us about the nursery rhymes that we had heard during childhood. Mother Goose Day is created in a way to honor Mother Goose which is an imaginary author of the collection of fairy tales and nursery rhymes. Mother Goose is illustrated as an old countrywoman in a tall hat and shawl often. However, at times, she is also depicted as a goose wearing a bonnet. Mother Goose is credited with the Mother Goose stories and rhymes that were popularized in the 17th century in English-language literature.
