This Mother's Day, turn back the clock just a bit. Become the child you were, are, or can't seem to remember anymore.
Make something for your mother that represents you, and no gift on earth will be more cherished.
Flowers have a special meaning on Mother's Day. Carnations worn on Mother's Day have important symbolic meanings.
Wear a pink
carnation to honor your mother who is living; wear a white
carnation in memory for a mother who has passed away.
On the second Sunday in May across the United States, families celebrate and honor their mothers on "Mother's Day."
The US Mother's Day holiday started as a continuation of Mothering Sunday, an English 18th century holiday that permitted women in service to have a day off to return home to visit their mothers.
Mothering Sunday in the UK falls on the fourth Sunday in Lent. In Mexico, Mother's Day is celebrated on May 10.
Many countries around the world celebrate this special holiday. The day and date varies; here's a list of Mother's Day holidays around the world.
US Mother's Day Centennial Celebration - 100 Years of Love
The Mother's Day holiday was adopted in the United States state by state in response to a letter-writing campaign led by Anna Jarvis in the early 20th century.
Following adoption of the holiday by the state of Virginia, many other states adopted the Mother's Day holiday, and greeting card makers promoted Mother's Day, which helped make it popular nationwide.
Since 1915, Mother's Day has been an officially-recognized US holiday and the most popular day in America for going out to dinner with Mom.
Traditionally, children give their mother a red carnation to demonstrate their affection, while white carnations are reserved for remembering mothers who are deceased.
