Mother’s Day History
Mother’s Day has been formally celebrated in the United States since 1914. The first attempts to establish Mother’s Day started with the meeting of groups of moms whose sons had fought or died during the Civil War. This led to the idea of creating a special day to reunite families divided during the war.
Anna Jarvis, who established Mother’s Day as we celebrate it nowadays, specifically noted that the holiday’s name should be written in singular and not plural, as symbol for each family to honor its own mother.
