In the U.S. Mothers' Day is a holiday celebrated on second Sunday in May. It is a day when
children honor their mothers with cards, gifts, and flowers. First observance in Philadelphia,
Pa. in 1907, it is based on suggestions by Julia Ward Howe in 1872 and by Anna Jarvis in 1907.
Although it wasn't celebrated in the U.S. until 1907, there were days honoring mothers even in
the days of ancient Greece. In those days, however, it was Rhea, the Mother of the gods that
was given honor.
Later, in the 1600's, in England there was an annual observance called "Mothering Sunday." It
was celebrated during June, on the fourth Sunday. On Mothering Sunday, the servants, who
generally lived with their employers, were encouraged to return home and honor their mothers.
It was traditional for them to bring a special cake along to celebrate the occasion.
In the U.S., in 1907 Ana Jarvis, from Philadelphia, began a campaign to establish a national
Mother's Day. Jarvis persuaded her mother's church in Grafton, West Virginia to celebrate
Mother's Day on the second anniversary of her mother's death, the 2nd Sunday of May. The next
year Mother's Day was also celebrated in Philadelphia.
Jarvis and others began a letter-writing campaign to ministers, businessmen, and politicians
in their quest to establish a national Mother's Day. They were successful. President Woodrow
Wilson, in 1914, made the official announcement proclaiming Mother's Day a national observance
that was to be held each year on the 2nd Sunday of May.
Many other countries of the world celebrate their own Mother's Day at different times
throughout the year. Denmark, Finland, Italy, Turkey, Australia, and Belgium celebrate
Mother's Day on the second Sunday in May, as in the U.S.
