Parent’s Worship Day
Parent’s Worship Day is also known as Matri Pitri Pujan Diwas in Hindi. On the 14th of February, the entire country celebrates this day. It is actually observed to keep young people from celebrating Valentine’s Day. Parent’s Worship Day is a day dedicated to offering one’s parents the respect, love, and care they deserve. It was founded in 2007 by Sant Shri Asaram Ji Bapu. Bapuji was continuously emphasising the importance of instilling sanatan values in children and young so that India might become Vishv guru.
Valentine’s Day is a day to express your love, affection, respect, and concern for the person you admire and love. There is no bigger or more pure love relationship than that between a parent and a kid. On Valentine’s Day, Parents Worship Day is observed to commemorate true love and true valentine in its unselfish form.
Parents Worship Day instils in children a wonderful feeling of serving their parents in their hearts and souls. The pooja of Lord Shiva and Maa Parvati done by tiny Ganpati inspired this celebration.
The goal is to instil in Indian children the importance of our Indian heritage’s cultural values. Parents Worship Day is all about establishing family relationships and thanking our parents for everything they do for us selflessly, setting a good example of sincere and pure love.
According to Wikipedia, on this day, children of all religions celebrate their parents and seek their blessings by presenting them with tilaks and garlands.
Many people regard it as a way to strengthen family bonds and instil excellent qualities in children such as respect, obedience, and humility.

Muslim pupils celebrated the day as ‘Abba Ammi Ibadat Diwas,’ expressing their love for their parents. This day is also celebrated as Yumi Haya by many Muslims, particularly in Iran.
