Mother’s day history

Celebrating Mother's Day was started by an American woman named Anna Jarvis. Anna idolised her mother and loved her dearly. When Anna's mother died, she dedicated her life to her mother, deciding never to marry. She started celebrating Mother's Day to honour her mother. In those days in Europe this special day was called Mothering Sunday. 

Anna also built a memorial for her mother in St. Andrews Methodist Church in West Virginia which is also now the International Mother’s Day Shrine. Anna Jarvis wanted to honour her mother as she believed that a mother is "the person who has done more for you than anyone in the world". In 1914, US President Woodrow Wilson declared it a national holiday.
