In the United States, the celebration of Mother's Day began in the early 20th century when, following her mother’s death in 1905, a woman named Anna Jarvis conceived of Mother’s Day as a day of personal celebration between mothers and families.
By 1912 many states, towns and churches had adopted Mother’s Day as an annual holiday, and Jarvis had established the Mother’s Day International Association to help promote her cause. Her persistence paid off in 1914 when President Woodrow Wilson signed a measure officially establishing the second Sunday in May as Mother’s Day.
In the United States, Mother’s Day continues to be celebrated as a day to honor mothers and thank them for their love and support by presenting them with gifts and flowers. Families also celebrate by giving mothers a day off from activities like cooking or other household chores.
However you choose to celebrate, take time on Mother’s Day to thank those who have played a maternal role in your life!
