Rose Colors & Mother

Mother's Day is a day for celebrating and thanking mothers. In the United States, it is held on the second Sunday in May. Although festivals honoring mothers can be traced back to the Greek celebration honoring Rhea, the Mother of Gods, it was not until the 1870's that the holiday became a possibility in the United States.

In 1872, Julia Ward Howe, who held Mother's Day meetings in Boston, first suggested the day as one dedicated to peace. Later, Anna Reese Jarvis began efforts for a Mother's Day holiday which would help heal the emotional wounds of families torn by the Civil War. Unfortunately, Mrs. Jarvis died in 1905 before realizing her goal.

Mrs. Jarvis' daughter, also named Anna, then took up the cause in honor of her mother and began a campaign to establish a national Mother's Day. Jarvis persuaded her mother's church in Grafton, West Virginia to celebrate Mother's Day on the anniversary of her mother's death. A memorial service was held there on May 10, 1908 and in Philadelphia the following year where Jarvis moved.

Jarvis and others began a letter-writing campaign to ministers, businessmen, and politicians in their quest to establish a national Mother's Day. By 1914, President Woodrow Wilson made the official announcement proclaiming Mother's Day a national observance that was to be held each year on the 2nd Sunday of May.

Mothers often receive gifts on this day. Tradition calls for the wearing of or carnations on Mother's Day normally, red if one's mother is alive, white if she has died, and pink if one is not certain.
