Every second Sunday in May, people around the nation celebrate Mother’s Day by buying cards and showering their mom with a little extra love and attention (and maybe a gift or two).

And while there’s no question that the woman who raised us deserves our utmost gratitude and affection, there are actually deeper reasons as to why we celebrate Mother’s Day…

Quick History Lesson


The Mother’s Day origin story starts with a woman named Ann Jarvis. A peace activist who cared for wounded soldiers on both sides of the Civil War, Jarvis established what she called “Mother’s Day Work Clubs” in order to address public health issues.

Shortly after her passing, Jarvis’ daughter Anna sought to honor her mother by continuing her work and working to create a day to celebrate moms everywhere.

Though a proposal for the holiday was initially rejected by the U.S. Congress in 1908, the idea for Mother’s Day quickly began to gain popularity and most states began celebrating it as a local holiday by 1911.

Three years later, Woodrow Wilson signed a proclamation officially designating Mother’s Day a national holiday.
