The real Mother's Day
To all the Curious moms out there, Happy Motherís Day! Motherís Day became an official U.S. holiday in 1914. It was created by Anna Jarvis, who held a memorial ceremony for her own mother in 1908 and decided afterwards there should be a holiday to celebrate all mothers. Annaís mother, Ann Jarvis, helped start ďMothersí Day Work ClubsĒ before the Civil War to educate West Virginia mothers on proper child care. By 1912 Anna had quit her job and founded the Motherís Day International Association to work full time promoting the Motherís Day holiday. She tirelessly wrote letters to politicians, churches, business leaders, and womenís clubs, asking them to join her campaign. After two years she got her wish. In 1914 President Woodrow Wilson established Motherís Day as a national holiday, to be celebrated the second Sunday of May. In enacting the holiday, President Wilson called for a ďpublic expression of our love and reverence for the mothers of our country.Ē But less than a decade later, Jarvis was already disillusioned with the commercialization of her holiday. She filed a lawsuit to stop a Motherís Day event in 1923, and was arrested for disorderly conduct at a motherís convention in Philadelphia--she believed they were profiting from Motherís Day carnation sales. So Jarvis probably wouldnít be happy to know that today consumers spend $20 billion annually on Motherís Day. But I'm sure she would be happy to know that you are paying tribute to all the mothers that you know, and recognizing them for their hard work. So do it for Anna!
