Did you know: Mother's Day

Founded in 1908, Mother's Day is a holiday and tradition that is celebrated throughout the United States. The first official Mother's Day celebration was initiated by Anna Jarvis, the daughter of Anna Reeves Jarvis who was a major proponent of Mother's organizations. Anna Jarvis wanted a way to commemorate the hard work her mother had put in, and thus in 1908 in Grafton, West Virginia at a Methodist church, Mother's Day was born. Mother's Day became an official U.S. holiday in 1914.
