Mother’s Day is a holiday celebrated annually in more than 150 countries, although it is celebrated on different dates. This day is a tribute to all mothers and motherhood.
The first Mother’s Day was celebrated in Grafton, West Virginia, in 1908. Anna Jarvis held a memorial for her mother, Ann Reeves Jarvis. Anna began a campaign to make Mother’s Day a national holiday, and in 1914, President Woodrow Wilson proclaimed the second Sunday in May as Mother’s Day.
