The History of Mother's Day

Every year, we celebrate the maternal figures in our family, but have you ever wondered about the origins of Mother's Day? It's not just an American holiday. Early records of motherhood celebration date back to the times of Ancient Greek and Romans, and even before America became a nation, hundreds of countries all over the world were celebrating a holiday for mothers. Now, there are around 46 countries worldwide that celebrate the holiday at various times during the year although most occur, like in America, during the spring. As for the origins in the U.S., Mother’s Day wasn’t established as a national holiday in every state until 1911. The campaign started with a young woman and activist named Anne Jarvis, who wanted to honor the passing of her mother as well as spread appreciation for all mothers across the nation. However, when the holiday grew more commercialized, Anne Jarvis began to protest the holiday saying that making a profit off of pre-made cards and gifts was not the meaning of the holiday. Keep this in mind as the holiday comes up, and give your mother the homemade gift and handwritten note that she truly deserves.
