On May 9, 1914, President Woodrow Wilson signed a proclamation establishing Mother’s Day, a national holiday to be celebrated annually on the second Sunday of May. The woman responsible for its inception was Anna Jarvis (1864–1948), who wanted to memorialize her own mother and as a result saw the value in honoring all mothers. In Britain, Mother’s Day is celebrated in mid-Lent as Mothering Sunday. During the Middle Ages a custom developed of allowing those who had moved away to visit their home parishes and their mothers on Laetare Sunday, the fourth Sunday of Lent. Many other countries also celebrate the holiday on this date.

When considering a gift for Mom think of the gallery, Missouri Artist on Main.
