Mother’s Day is coming up on Sunday, May 12. That means you only have 4 more days to decide how you are going to celebrate the wonderful mothers in your life. Mother’s Day, specifically in the United States, has been celebrated since 1914 when President Woodrow Wilson proclaimed it to be a national holiday that was to be held every year on the second Sunday in May. Of course, we Americans were not the first to celebrate our mothers, so let’s take a look at how this tradition began.
Ancient Greeks honored their mother of the gods on a special day, Romans honored their version of the mother of the gods, Christians honored the mother Mary, and the English gave servants a special holiday in order to visit their mothers. According to familytime.com, “Julia Ward Howe is credited with first suggesting a day to honor American mothers and to celebrate peace in 1872… Howe organized annual Mother’s Day meetings in Boston.” It took years to formalize the day, but “in 1913, the House of Representatives adopted a resolution calling for federal government officials to wear white carnations in honor of mothers on the second Sunday in May.”
Mother’s Day is now the day that mothers receive cards, homemade goodies, treats, clean houses, breakfasts in bed, gifts, and many other pampered luxuries. The question for those who have mothers or mother like figures is what to get for them and how to show them your love and appreciation?
