Short History of Mother’s Day

Short History of Mother’s Day: The modern holiday of Mother’s Day was first celebrated in 1908, when Anna Jarvis held a memorial for her mother in America. She then began a campaign to make “Mother’s Day” a recognized holiday in the United States. Although she was successful in 1914, she was already disappointed with its commercialization by the 1920s.

In this tradition, people give candy, gifts, cards and flowers to their mothers, grandmothers, and or maternal figure. In many homes, it’s a day where Mom is honored, and is exempt from the typical household chores. Often family gathers to visit, picnic or take her out to brunch, lunch or dinner.
