Mother’s Day has been celebrated for a long time. It was officially recognized as a United States Holiday in 1914. However, celebrations of mothers have occurred since Ancient Greece. The American version was created in 1908 by Anna Jarvis. Mother’s Day usually falls on the second Sunday in May. We celebrate it here by usually presenting our mothers with flowers, cards, candy, or other gifts.

Anna Reeves Jarvis of West Virginia started “Mother’s Day Work Clubs” to teach local women how to care for their children. After the Civil War, Jarvis organized “Mother’s Friendship Day.” During these celebrations, mothers gathered with former Union and Confederate soldiers to promote reconciliation.
