                 Contrary to popular belief, Mother's Day was not conceived and fine-tuned in the
    boardroom of Hallmark. The earliest tributes to mothers date back to the annual spring
    festival the Greeks dedicated to Rhea, the mother of many deities, and to the offerings
    ancient Romans made to their Great Mother of Gods, Cybele. Christians celebrated this
    festival on the fourth Sunday in Lent in honor of Mary, mother of Christ. In England this
    holiday was expanded to include all mothers and was called Mothering Sunday.

                In the United States, Mother's Day started nearly 150 years ago, when Anna Jarvis, an
    Appalachian homemaker, organized a day to raise awareness of poor health conditions in
    her community, a cause she believed would be best advocated by mothers. She called it
    "Mother's Work Day."

In 1905 when Anna Jarvis died, her daughter, also named Anna, began a campaign to memorialize
the life work of her mother. Legend has it that young Anna remembered a Sunday school lesson
that her mother gave in which she said, "I hope and pray that someone, sometime, will found a
memorial mother's day. There are many days for men, but none for mothers." In 1914 Anna's hard
work paid off when Woodrow Wilson signed a bill recognizing Mother's Day as a national holiday.

At first, people observed Mother's Day by attending church, writing letters to their mothers, and
eventually, by sending cards, presents, and flowers. With the increasing gift-giving activity
associated with Mother's Day, Anna Jarvis became enraged. Before her death in 1948, Jarvis is
said to have confessed that she regretted ever starting the mother's day tradition.

Despite Jarvis's misgivings, Mother's Day has flourished in the United States. In fact, the second
Sunday of May has become the most popular day of the year to dine out, and telephone lines
record their highest traffic, as sons and daughters everywhere take advantage of this day to
honor and to express appreciation of their mothers
