Mother’s Day is a special day that is set aside for beloved mothers in our family, society, and around the world. Anna Jarvis campaigned in 1905 to make Mother’s Day an official holiday in the America. Her mother died in the same year and she wanted to commemorate her mother, a peace activist, who tended to injured soldiers during the American Civil War. In addition, Jarvis wanted to address public health problems with the celebration of Mother’s Day.
The proposal was rejected and lawmakers even joked that if they allowed Mother’s Day, then there would have to be Mothers-in-Law Day. Thankfully, 1911 saw Mother’s Day as an official holiday.
So visit your mother, call her on the phone, or message her on Facebook. Tell her how much you love her and how special she is to you. And while you’re at it, greet all the mothers in the world a Happy Mother’s Day too!
