Mother’s Day is Sunday, May 13
May 8, 2018
Mother’s Day is a celebration honoring the mother of the family (whether it is a biological mother, surrogate, foster, aunt, cousin, neighbor, nana, or grandmother), as well as motherhood.
The American incarnation of Mother’s Day was created by Anna Jarvis and Julie Ward Howe in 1908 and became an official U.S. holiday six years later on May 8, 1914. On this day, daughters, sons, and husbands usually have plans to make this day extra special and memorable.
So, take a moment on May 13 to say thank you to that special woman who has helped make your life meaningful!
