This Sunday, May 8, Mother’s Day will be celebrated worldwide. Mother’s Day has been celebrated on the second Sunday of May every year since it became an official US holiday in 1914.

Anna Jarvis, the founder of Mother’s Day, campaigned for the day’s recognition. The first Mother’s Day was celebrated in 1910 in West Virginia—Jarvis’ home state.

Although the origination of Mother’s Day is typically associated with Jarvis, Julia Ward Howe also had a prominent role in the origination of the holiday. Around 1870, Howe sponsored Mother’s Day by promoting disarmament and pacifism with women. Howe also wrote the Mother’s Day Proclamation.

It was not until 1914 that Mother’s Day became a national holiday in the United States after President Wilson signed the proclamation, permitting the national celebration of the day to honor motherhood.

Mother’s Day is a day that has a sole purpose of honoring motherhood, and celebrating the influence that mothers have on society, in addition to the lives of their children.

There are many different gift ideas and ways to celebrate Mother’s Day. Popular gifts include handmade crafts, jewelry, chocolate, cards, flowers, candy, and a beauty or spa treatment.
