Learn how Mothers Day Originated.

Sunday, May 11, 2008 |

Today May 11th is celebrated as mothers day. Here is how it came to effect

The Mother's Day holiday, in the United States, celebrates motherhood generally and the positive contributions of mothers to society. It falls on the second Sunday of each May. It is the result of a campaign by Anna Marie Jarvis (1864-1948), who, following the death of her mother on May 9, 1905, devoted her life to establishing Mother's Day as a national, and later an international, holiday

The second Sunday of May will fall on the following dates in the next few years:
2008 - May 11
2009 - May 10
2010 - May 9
2011 - May 8

M - O - T - H - E - R
"M" is for the million things she gave me,
"O" means only that she's growing old,
"T" is for the tears she shed to save me,
"H" is for her heart of purest gold;
"E" is for her eyes, with love-light shining,
"R" means right, and right she'll always be,

Put them all together, they spell "MOTHER,"

A word that means the world to me.

Howard Johnson (c. 1915)
