MOTHERS DAY | MAY 1, 2024

LYNN

Mother’s Day is a heartwarming and significant annual celebration that honors and recognizes the extraordinary role of mothers in our lives. It’s a day to express gratitude, love, and appreciation for the selfless sacrifices, tireless efforts, and unwavering support that mothers provide. Exploring the history of this day reveals fascinating insights into how it came to be such an important event. Mother’s Day is a special occasion to show appreciation and love to your mother. Learn about the history of this day.

 

Anna Jarvis, a resident of Philadelphia, originated Mother’s Day. Her mother had organized women’s groups to promote friendship and health. On May 12, 1907, Anna held a memorial service for her late mother at a church in Grafton, West Virginia.

Almost every state in the U.S. observed the day within five years, and in 1914, U.S. President Woodrow Wilson made it a national holiday. 

Anna initially promoted wearing a white carnation to honor one’s mother, but it evolved to wearing a red or pink carnation for a living mother and a white one for a deceased one. The celebration was later extended to include grandmothers and aunts. Although the day was commercialized with cards and gifts, we can still make it memorable for our moms.

Happy Mother’s Day. Love you all, Lynn.
