The Origin of Mother's Day in the United States

Ann Jarvis

The origins of Mother's Day in the United States can be traced back to the late 19th century. Ann Jarvis, a social activist dedicated to improving public health and hygiene education in her community, decided to honor her mother as a person worthy of commemoration and respect.

After her mother's death, she began advocating for a "Mother's Memorial Day". Ann's initiative received widespread support locally and in 1908, she successfully held the first Mother's Day celebration in Grafton, West Virginia. On this day, people expressed gratitude and respect for their mothers by giving them flowers and gifts. The event gained more and more attention and gradually spread nationwide.

In 1914, the US Congress officially designated Mother's Day as the second Sunday of every year to recognize the important role and contributions of mothers in the home and community. Since then, Mother's Day has become a popular holiday, and people commemorate and celebrate their mothers in various ways.

Whether you are a busy working adult or a child in school, you can express your love for your mother in your own way on Mother's Day. Of course, everyone's situation is different, so the way to express love is also different. Below are the most suitable Mother's Day gift recommendations. You can prepare all of them or choose one that you prepare with care. In any case, I believe all mothers will love them.

1. Have a meal with your mother

Companionship is the longest confession of love. Perhaps you are usually very busy and neglect to have a meal with your mother, but on Mother's Day, please stop and have a meal with your mom. 

If you have a budget, you can choose to take your mother to a restaurant for her favorite food or order takeout to have a meal at home. If you can cook, preparing a delicious meal for your mother personally is definitely the best holiday gift.

2. Going on an outing with your mother if the weather permits is a good choice


The weather varies in each state, so if you plan to go out, please check the weather conditions for that day in advance. Mother's Day in 2023 falls on Sunday, May 14th, so please check the weather for that day before deciding whether to go out.

In addition, if you want to have a picnic, you need to prepare food in advance. Convenient foods to bring along, such as various fruit and vegetable salads, juices, etc., are the best choices.

3. If you are unable to celebrate with your mother, then connect with her online

If you are unable to celebrate with your mother for various reasons, you must express your love and appreciation for her online so as not to make her sad. In the United States, Mother's Day is a peak period for telephone usage, with many people conveying their good wishes over the phone.

Nowadays, the Internet is very advanced, and you can connect with your mother face-to-face through online video, having a meal together, chatting, or even watching a movie together are all great options.

4. Beautiful flowers for the most beautiful mother

Carnations are the most traditional Mother's Day flowers, and their origins date back to Ann Jarvis' mother, who loved them the most. "The carnation does not drop its petals but hugs them to its heart as it dies, and so too, mothers hug their children to their hearts, their mother love never dying," she said.

Of course, it is not limited to this type of flower now. The most important thing is to see which flowers your own mother likes. If you don't even know what kind of flowers your mother likes, then you need to pay more attention to her.

5. Greeting cards are the most common and basic gift

You can purchase a greeting card or make one yourself. The card itself is not important, what's important is the message you write inside.

If you want to do more, I suggest making a memory card, recording, and sharing every little moment spent with your mother. I believe your mother will love this gift.

6. Prepare a performance for your mother

There are no limits to the form of the performance, just choose something that you can do well. For example, you can sing a beautiful song for your mother, or dance together with her. Of course, if you know how to play an instrument, it would be even better. A moving violin piece would definitely make your mother feel happy.

7. Buying Festival Gifts

In short, there are many ways to express love, and you can choose the one that suits you best. Actually, mothers don't demand much from their children, a heartfelt blessing can make them feel happy.
