Mother’s Day holiday, celebrates motherhood generally and the positive contributions of mothers to society. It falls on the second Sunday of each May. It is the result of a campaign by Anna Marie Jarvis (1864–1948), who, following the death of her mother on May 9, 1905, devoted her life to establishing Mother’s Day as a national, and later an international, holiday. The first observances of both Mother’s Day and Father’s Day were held in the state of West Virginia.

Mother’s day, the day to celebrate mother is observed on the following dates:


Sunday, May 10th
Sunday, May 9th
Sunday, May 8th
Sunday, May 13th
Sunday, May 12th
Sunday, May 11th
Sunday, May 10th

Early “Mother’s Day ” was mostly marked by women’s peace groups. A common early activity was the meeting of groups of mothers whose sons had fought or died on opposite sides of the American Civil War.
The first known observance of Mother’s Day in the U.S. occurred in Albion, Michigan, on May 13, 1877,[4] the second Sunday of the month. According to local legend, Albion pioneer, Juliet Calhoun Blakeley, stepped up to complete the sermon of the Rev. Myron Daughterty, who was distraught because an anti-temperance group had forced his son and two other temperance advocates to spend the night in a saloon and become publicly drunk. In the pulpit, Blakeley called on other mothers to join her. Blakeley’s two sons, both travelling salesmen, were so moved that they vowed to return each year to pay tribute to her and embarked on a campaign to urge their business contacts to do likewise. At their urging, in the early 1880s, the Methodist Episcopal Church in Albion set aside the second Sunday in May to recognize the special contributions of mothers.
On February 4, 1904, South Bend, Indiana resident Frank E. Hering made the first Public Plea and started his own campaign for a national observance of “Mother’s Day ” in Indianapolis, Indiana.
