🌺 Mother's Day FAQ's
The modern-day celebration of Mother's Day in the United States can be traced back to the efforts of Anna Jarvis in 1908. She wanted to honor her mother and all mothers by creating a special day of recognition. The holiday gained popularity and was officially recognized by the U.S. government in 1914.
Mother's Day celebrations can include giving gifts, such as flowers or chocolates, cooking a special meal (you can find lots of ideas with these 30 favorite vegan recipes for Mother's Day), taking mom out for a meal, and spending quality time with family. For those who live far away from their mothers, an easy and meaningful way to say I love you is by sending a heartfelt card and (of course)to express your love and appreciation. No matter what, don't forget to call your mother!
A: No, Mother's Day is a day to honor and appreciate all mother figures, including stepmothers, grandmothers, and aunts or any person who has taken on maternal roles in our lives.
