Mother’s Day is this Sunday, May 8

According to the U.S. Census Bureau, the first Mother’s Day was organized by Anna Jarvis on May 10, 1908, in Grafton, West Virginia and Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. It was such a success around the country that Jarvis asked Congress to set aside a day to honor mothers. In 1914 Congress made the second Sunday in May Mother’s Day.
