HOW MOTHER’S DAY ORIGINATED!
The tradition originated as a campaign for peace and workers’ health and safety after the American Civil War. In 1907, Anna Jarvis held a small, private recognition of all mothers in West Virginia after the death of her own mother in May 1905. The elder Jarvis had been active in the peace movements and her daughter devoted her life to establishing Mother’s Day as a national, and later, international holiday.

The second Sunday in May became nationally recognized as Mother’s Day in 1914. The following suggestions will help make your purchase of a Mother’s Day basket an informed, pleasant event.
