Flowers and Pearls

Today is a special day to celebrate your mom and all that she does. Mother’s Day was founded by Anna Jarvis, and was made a national holiday in 1914. President Woodrow Wilson signed a measure officially establishing the second Sunday in May as Mother’s Day. Soon after, florists and car companies capitalized on the holiday making Anna Jarvis upset. She eventually started a campaign against the holiday and wanted it removed from the American Calendar. She felt the holiday had lost its true meaning.
