The modern celebration of Mother’s Day, as we know it, began in the United States, inspired by Anna Jarvis in the early 1900s. Motivated by her mother’s passing in 1905, Jarvis aimed to pay tribute to her own mother and the selfless acts of all mothers towards their children. She successfully organized the inaugural Mother’s Day event in 1908 at a church in Grafton, West Virginia. Her relentless advocacy for the day to be recognized nationally bore fruit when President Woodrow Wilson declared the second Sunday in May as Mother’s Day in 1914. Today, Mother’s Day is observed all around the globe, albeit on different dates and in various manners, but the core idea of honoring motherhood remains unchanged; a celebration where children give presents to their mothers.
