About International Mother’s Day

The origin of International Mother’s Day has been attributed to Anna Jarvis, who first came with the idea to celebrate mothers’ service to their families. It was a way for her to celebrate and remember her own mother who passed away.  The first original celebration of Mother’s Day was held in 1908 in Grafton, West Virginia USA. The holiday soon quickly gained interest and popularity all over the USA. Anna Jarvis began campaigning for recognition of Mother’s Day as a national holiday and choose the second Sunday in May to be the official holiday date for celebrations.  This date marked the anniversary of her mother’s death.

White carnations are widely accepted as the official symbol of the day world-wide, which was a favourite flower of Anna Jarvis’ mother. The celebration quickly extended over continents over to Europe.
