Mother’s Day 2013
One of the most important days in the year is this Sunday, May 12th – Mother’s Day. It is the biggest holiday behind Christmas Eve and Easter for the sale of flowers, greeting cards, long-distance calls, and special gifts. This is also the busiest day of the year for restaurants. What were its humble beginnings?
Brief History – Anna Jarvis trade-marked the phrases, “Second Sunday in May,” and “Mother’s Day” in 1912. She created the Mother’s Day International Association. It was her mother’s dream of making the day a celebration of all mothers. The idea took off with the help of wealthy Philadelphia merchant, John Wanamaker and with the support of President Woodrow Wilson this day became an official holiday in 1914. The holiday was adopted by other countries and spread world wide with celebration closely linked to existing culture.
There are many ways to observe Mother’s Day. Many restaurants offer special Mother’s Day brunches that will make a memorable occasion. We hope you find one in your local community.
We think Mom’s will love this for dessert. Don’t you?
