The second Sunday of May is the day that many countries recognize as Mother's Day and Mothers are given special attention and are given gifts. Have you ever wondered when this annual event began and how it even got started? Visit Mothers Day Central for the full story. I will give you a little background on Mother's Day here in the U.S.
As you can probably imagine like manyother things, if the British were doing something (like celebrating Mother's Days) back in England at the time that the first English settlers came to America, guess what, they were not going to do it in America. So the celebration of Mother's Day was discontinued. Making a long story short, it was not until 1914 when the national observance and declaring the second Sunday in May as Mother's Day was signed by Woodrow Wilson.
So Thank You Woodrow Wilson, and the many others along the way pushing for Mother's Day. I hope all the mothers out there have a wonderful day.
Happy Mother's Day Momma! I love you!
