Mother’s Day is a modern holiday that was created with the intention of honoring one’s own mother, as well as motherhood, maternal bonds, and the influence of mothers in society. It is celebrated on various days in many parts of the world, most commonly in the months of March or May.
The celebration of Mother’s Day began in the United States in 1908 when Anna Jarvis held a memorial for her mother in Grafton, West Virginia. Her campaign to make it a recognized holiday in the United States began when her mother died in 1905. In 1914, President Woodrow Wilson signed the proclamation creating Mother’s Day, which falls on the second Sunday in May, as a national holiday to honor mothers.
