The idea for a “Mother’s Day” is credited to Anna Jarvis, who on May 10, 1908 held a special ceremony to honor all mother's, including her own at the International Mother's Day Shrine which today stands as a National Historic Landmark in Grafton, West Virginia.
Many individual states celebrated Mother's Day by 1911, but it wasn't until Woodrow Wilson lobbied Congress in 1914 that Mother's Day was officially set on the second Sunday of every May. In his first Mother's Day proclamation, Wilson stated that the holiday offered a chance to, "publicly express our love and reverence for the mothers of our country."
