Mother’s Day is Three Days Away

A woman named Ann Jarvis created Mother’s Day in 1908, and it became an official US holiday in 1914. Of course, eventually, it was taken over by card, flower, and jewelry companies, leading Ann to try removing it from the calendar.

Now, the day is recognized across the world in various forms and on various dates.
