The Origins of Mother's Day
While some might think that Mother's Day was invented by moms who simply wanted to enjoy a day of pampering from their kids, that's not the case. Others suggest that Mother's Day, like Valentine's Day, was invented by greeting card companies, but that's also inaccurate.
Historians report that Anna Jarvis, a West Virginia native, spearheaded a multi-year campaign to establish a nationwide holiday honoring mothers beginning in 1905, the year her own mother passed away. Jarvis held a public memorial for her late mother in 1908, and Jarvis continued to lobby politicians to designate a special day for moms.
Following Jarvis' lead, Mother's Day celebrations began to spread throughout the states. In 1914, President Woodrow Wilson proclaimed the second Sunday in May each year would be known as Mother's Day. He declared that the national holiday would be "a public expression of love and reverence for the mothers of our county", and since then, the day has been embraced by the entire country.
Unique Ways to Celebrate Mother's Day
For most moms, celebrating Mother's Day with a breakfast made by their kids, getting a bunch of flowers or heading out for a special meal is the norm. These are welcome gestures, but families who really want to show their mom some extra love can think outside the box when it comes to planning an extra-memorable Mother's Day.
Here's some ideas you can use to make your next Mother's Day the best one yet:
Binge-Watch Mom's Favorite Shows With Her
If your mom is a die-hard TV fan, why not dedicate the day to binge-watching her favorite series? Stock up on mom's favorite munchies, give her the comfy chair and keep her company while she gets to relax and enjoy!
Look Through Family Photos Together
Take a trip down memory lane with your mom by going through family photo albums together. You'll get a refresher on your family history while getting plenty of chances to remind your mom why she's the best mom in the world.
Go to a Concert
Make this Mother's Day memorable by taking mom to a concert. Not only is this a great way to spend quality time with your mom, but it's something that she'll remember for years to come.
Book a Family Photo Shoot
Family photo sessions were once a time-honored tradition, and it's one that's coming back. Consider booking a portrait session with your entire family so that mom can have professional portraits of her nearest and dearest. To make your family portrait extra special, gift it to mom in a custom engraved photo frame complete with a favorite quote, bible verse, date or names.
Find the Perfect Personalized Mother's Day Gift
When Anna Jarvis first advocated for a national holiday to celebrate mothers, she was clear that the day was meant to celebrate the personal, family connection between children and their mother. Jarvis wanted the day to be unique and memorable for every mother, and she believed that Mother's Day should be customized to each individual.
