According to the History Channel:
Mother’s Day is a holiday honoring motherhood that is observed in different forms throughout the world. The American incarnation of Mother’s Day was created by Anna Jarvis in 1908 and became an official U.S. holiday in 1914. Jarvis would later denounce the holiday’s commercialization and spent the latter part of her life trying to remove it from the calendar. While dates and celebrations vary, Mother’s Day most commonly falls on the second Sunday in May and traditionally involves presenting mothers with flowers, cards and other gifts.
To all the Mother’s out there, Happy Mother’s Day. I hope you enjoy your day.
And to my Mom, love you to the moon and back. Thank you for all you have done for me and teaching me to be the woman that I am today.
