Mother’s Day Fun Stuff To Know

Mom’s Day is Sunday!  How will you celebrate Mother’s Day for your Mom this year?  Dinner, flowers, a complete day off from cooking, cleaning, taking care of everything?  Over the next couple days, I’ll have some Mother’s Day fun stuff to know for you!  Check these facts out:

Feasts celebrating mothers have existed throughout the world since the beginning of time. The modern version of Mother’s Day in the United States, was first observed in 1907.

Anna Jarvis of Philadelphia decided that it would be a wonderful way to honor her deceased mother. In 1909, Jarvis and friends began a letter-writing campaign to create a Mother’s Day observance.

In 1914, the US Congress passed legislation designating the second Sunday in May as Mother’s Day, which was later signed by President Woodrow Wilson into an official holiday.

Eventually Mother’s day became very popular and gift giving activity increased. All this commercialization of the Mother’s day infuriated Anna as she believed that the day’s sentiment was being sacrificed at the expense of greed and profit.

The tradition calls for the wearing of carnations on Mother’s Day-a red one if one’s mother is alive, and white if she has passed.

In the Bible, Eve is credited with being the ‘Mother of All the Living.’

In the vast majority of the world’s languages, the word for “mother” begins with the letter M.

It’s time for Mother’s Day — and time to test your knowledge of TV Mom’s – do you remember?

Happy Mother's Day
