The music scene often witnesses during this time of the year the release of new songs on the occasion of Mother's Day، which is held annually on March 21.

Tunisian singer-actress، Latifa Bint Alaya El Arfaoui، better known as Latifa، released a new music video on the occasion of mother's day، entitled “Ommy”، on her official “YouTube” channel.

The music video is by the lyrics of Ahmed Samy، Ramy Gamal Eldin، and composed by Islam Sabry.

Noteworthy، Mother’s Day is a holiday honoring motherhood that is observed in different forms throughout the world، and Mother’s Day 2019 occurs on Thrusday، March 21، in the Middle East، according to history.

Mother’s Day traditionally involves presenting moms with flowers، cards and other gifts.

History of Mother’s Day
Celebrations of mothers and motherhood can be traced back to the ancient Greeks and Romans، who held festivals in honor of the mother goddesses Rhea and Cybele.

Mother’s Day Around the World
While versions of Mother’s Day are celebrated worldwide، traditions vary depending on the country. In Thailand، for example، Mother’s Day is always celebrated in August on the birthday of the current queen، Sirikit.

Another alternate observance of Mother’s Day can be found in Ethiopia، where families gather each fall to sing songs and eat a large feast as part of Antrosht، a multi-day celebration honoring motherhood.

In the United States، Mother’s Day continues to be celebrated by presenting mothers and other women with gifts and flowers، and it has become one of the biggest holidays for consumer spending. Families also celebrate by giving mothers a day off from activities like cooking or other household chores.

At times، Mother’s Day has also been a date for launching political or feminist causes. In 1968 Coretta Scott King، wife of Martin Luther King Jr.، used Mother’s Day to host a march in support of underprivileged women and children. In the 1970s women’s groups also used the holiday as a time to highlight the need for equal rights and access to childcare.
