Make Her Day This Mother’s Day!

May 6, 2016

Although moms are special and should be recognized year-round, this Sunday, May 8th is the official Mother’s Day! Mother’s Day became a holiday in 1914 and typically falls on the second Sunday in May. Its founder, Anna Jarvis, established Mother’s Day as a way to honor the sacrifices mothers made for their children. Ironically, after the heavy commercialization of Mother’s Day that boomed with florists and card companies, Jarvis denounced the holiday[1].
