History of Mother's Day

The modern Mother's Day celebration began in the United States in the early 20th century. It was started by Anna Jarvis, who wanted to honor her mother, a social activist and community organizer, after her death in 1905. Anna Jarvis campaigned for a national day to honor mothers, and in 1914, President Woodrow Wilson proclaimed the second Sunday in May as Mother's Day.
