falls on the second Sunday in May
and is a celebration of Motherhood.
Julia Ward Howe first suggested the observance of a Mother's Day in 1872. The day was dedicated to peace. She held an annual meeting, for several years in the city of Boston, Massachusetts for this observance.
However, it wasn't until Anna Jarvis, of
West Virginia, began a nationwide campaign for its observance that the idea took
root. On May 10, 1908 churches in Grafton, West Virginia and Philadelphia,
Pennsylvania held Mother's Day celebrations.
