Mother’s Day

Celebrating Mom this Mother’s Day

Setting aside one day a year to honor and celebrate mothers is a tradition that as roots has far back as the late 1800s. By the year 1914, thanks to the persistence of Ms. Anna Jarvis, Mother’s Day became an official holiday when President Woodrow Wilson signed a measure to establish the second Sunday in May as Mother’s Day. While Ms. Jarvis originally thought of the holiday as a day of personal celebration between mothers and their families, it quickly become a commercialized event as florists and card companies capitalized on its popularity.

Mother’s Day is celebrated in various ways throughout the world on different days, but in the United States, it’s become one of the biggest holidays associated with consumer spending. Did you know more phone calls are placed on Mother’s Day than any other day of the year? Whether you honor Mom this year by presenting her with a bouquet of flowers, brunch at a nice restaurant, a day at the spa, or even simply with a thoughtfully chosen card, it’s important to take some time show some appreciation for the most important woman in your life.
