About The History of Mother's Day

Held on the Second Sunday of May each year, Mother's Day is recognized by children for the contributions made by mothers in the United States. 

The holiday was founded by Anna Jarvis beginning in 1908.

The genesis of Mother's day begins with Ann Reeves Jarvis.

Her mother. Ann Jarvis began forming work clubs for mothers as a way to improve sanitary conditions and lower infant mortality rates during the Civil War. 

Compelled by the death of her mother in 1905, the idea was to honor the sacrifices mothers make by having children write handwritten notes.

A simple gesture to show appreciation. Jarvis eventually took on a letter writing campaign to have it officially recognized by those in power. It wasn't until she obtained the help of the World's Sunday School Association that it obtained some traction.

The first state to recognize Mother's Day was West Virginia. 

Soon many states began to recognize it. President Woodrow Wilson, in 1914, by Presidential proclamation signed Mother's Day into law recognizing it as a national holiday. 

During the 1920s, the holiday started to become commercialized much to Ms. Jarvis's dismay.

She considered the holiday a distortion of its original intent.

Sadly, she spent her entire inheritance and life fighting a futile attempt to reverse it. Today, it remains one of the signature holidays in the United States. The idea of remembrance remains open to the interpretation of the individual.
