So when is Mother’s Day again? Sunday, May 12th 2019—mark it as a red letter day.
Mother’s Day has been officially celebrated for more than a hundred years - ever since 1914, when President Woodrow Wilson signed a decree designating Mother’s Day as the second Sunday in May.
It’s thanks to a mother—Anna Jarvis of West Virginia—that Mother’s Day exists at all. Before the Civil War she started “Mothers’ Day Work Clubs” to teach local women how best to take care of their children. The organization survived the war years, and in 1868, after the end of the war, Jarvis organized a “Mothers’ Friendship Day,” where mothers met with former Union and Confederate soldiers to encourage reconciliation.
Jarvis’s first Mother’s Day celebration event in Philadelphia in 1908 was about putting aside time to honor her own mother, Ann Reese Jarvis, along with mothers around the country who did so much for their children. The event was a huge success so Jarvis organized a letter writing campaign to newspapers and politicians to make the holiday an official one, which is exactly what President Wilson went ahead and did.
