Mother’s Day is a holiday celebrated annually as a tribute to all mothers and motherhood. It is celebrated on various dates in many parts of the world. Although the origins of the holiday date back to the times of the ancient Greeks and Romans, the modern form of the celebration of Mother’s Day in the United States began in the early 20th century.
Mother’s Day was first celebrated in 1908 in Grafton, West Virginia, when Anna Jarvis held a memorial for her mother Ann Reeves Jarvis who, in turn, many years earlier had founded Mothers’ Day Work Clubs in five cities. Anna Jarvis began a campaign to make Mother’s Day a national holiday and she succeeded in 1914. U.S. President Woodrow Wilson proclaimed the second Sunday in May to be Mother’s Day.
So, what shows your mother or wife you really care about them more than making brunch at home? Anyone can take mom out, but taking family time with the kids, in the kitchen, is not only educational but fun! And mom will enjoy the food so much more knowing the family made it together with love.
Make sure to treat your mother or wife with respect and love. Take the time to make something from the heart; it is so much more special. Remember, you only have one mother!
