Mother’s Day

Mother’s Day is this Sunday, May 12.  Remember Mom and let her know how much she is loved AND appreciated.

Do you know how Mother’s Day got started?

The modern holiday was first celebrated in the U.S. in 1908, when Anna Jarvis held a memorial for her mother. She then began a campaign to make “Mother’s Day” a recognized holiday in the US. Although she was successful in 1914, she was already disappointed with its commercialization by the 1920s. Jarvis’ holiday was adopted by other countries and it’s now celebrated all over the world.
