Mother's Day is celebrated in the USA: the history of the holiday

In the United States, Mother's Day became an official holiday in 1914. This was due to the efforts of Anna Jarvis, driven by her belief that it was necessary to honor all that mothers sacrifice for their children.

Anna Jarvis conceived Mother's Day as a family holiday, but soon after he acquired an official character, flower shops, companies producing holiday cards, and many others rushed to take advantage of his popularity.

All this didn’t please Anna Jarvis, and shortly before her death in 1948, she regretted her initiative. She even appealed to the government to cancel the holiday.

Nevertheless, Mother's Day continues to be celebrated. This is one of the most popular holidays and one of the main days on which shoppers make the most purchases.

Not in all countries, Mother's Day is celebrated on the second Sunday of May. In Thailand, this day is celebrated in August, the birthday of the current queen of the country. In Ethiopia, families solemnly celebrate this holiday for several days, paying tribute to their mothers.
