Mother's Day History
Mother's Day seeks to honor and recognize the sacrifices and accomplishments of mothers. Mothers are recognized by family and friends regardless of whether they are biological or perceived maternal figures. This day offers sons, daughters, and anyone with a mother the chance to show their appreciation. Mothers are typically thanked with cards and flowers, breakfast in bed, or by agreeing to do all the household chores.
Mother’s Day was established in 1914 by US President Woodrow Wilson. It is observed annually on the second Sunday in May.
