History of Mother's Day
Celebrating mothers with a special day actually didn't start until after the start of the 20th century. The first official celebration of Mother's Day was 1908 in the United States at a Methodist church in Grafton, West Virginia. It was organized by Anna Jarvis and was funded by John Wanamaker, a store owner from Philadelphia who was already having a Mother’s Day event in May.
Anna Jarvis was the brain behind the holiday. She wanted Mother's Day to be added to the national calendar, and wrote letters to multiple newspapers and politicians, asking for the day to be recognized across the country. By 1912, Mother's Day was celebrated every year in many states and towns. In 1914, president Woodrow Wilson signed a measure making Mother's Day an official annual celebration on the second Sunday in May.
