Quote of the day

To see takes time like to have a friend takes time.

Wake up, it’s Mothers Day!


A brief history of Mother’s Day

The origins of Mother’s Day

  • The modern holiday was first celebrated in 1907 by Anna Jarvis in Grafton, West Virginia, honoring the mothers of the United States.
  • In 1908, Congress rejected a proposal to make Mother’s Day an official holiday, joking that they would also have to proclaim a “Mother-in-law’s Day”.
  • Due to the efforts of Anna Jarvis, by 1911 all U.S. states observed the holiday and it became a national holiday in 1914
  • By the 1920s, Hallmark Cards and other companies had started selling Mother Day cards and flowers, and Jarvis protested the commercialization of the holiday.

International:

  • Constance Adelaide Smith advocated for Mothering Sunday, an already-existing Christian ecclesiastical celebration in which the faithful visit the church in which they received the sacrament of baptism, as an equivalent celebration
  • Her efforts were successful in the British Isles and other parts of the English-speaking world.

So, give your mother, the mother of your kids or grandkids a hug! Some flowers wouldn’t hurt either…😉
