Mother’s Day has been an official holiday in the US since 1914. President Woodrow Wilson signed the proclamation declaring a day for “public expression of our love and reverence for the mothers of our country”. While he is considered to be “the father” of the holiday, the “mother” is Anna Jarvis and her own mother.
Jarvis’ mom created Mother’s Day as a day when all moms would get together and help out other mothers who were less fortunate. It was a day for work and aid for those moms in the community who needed it most. After her own mother passed away, Jarvis set out to make the holiday a national one. While the holiday has changed, becoming a time when moms are celebrated, the sentiment remains the same- mothers are important, essential, and deserve to be seen for all that they do.
Mother’s Day always falls on the second Sunday in May. This year, 2021, all the moms in the United States will be celebrated on May 9th. There are many Mother’s Day traditions that you can choose to take part in to show your mom how much you care. Giving your mom flowers and serving her breakfast in bed is a classic way to celebrate. Carnations are the official flower of mother’s day and each color flower even has its own meaning.
You can send your mom a card or just give her a call. About 122 million phone calls are made on Mother’s Day, making it the busiest day for almost every phone service provider. Going out to brunch is a great way to spend the day with your mom or, giving a box of chocolates is always delicious too!
