Mother's Day in the United States is celebrated annually on the second Sunday of May, and honors motherhood as is observed in different forms throughout the world. So, is Mother’s Day a public holiday? Mother’s Day is not a public holiday, but rather a day to celebrate and appreciate mothers, including grandmothers, great-grandmothers, stepmothers etc.

History of Mother’s Day

The modern holiday of Mother's Day was first celebrated in 1907, when Anna Jarvis held a memorial for her mother at St Andrew's Methodist Church in Grafton, West Virginia. By 1914, an official proclamation was made by president Woodrow Wilson, and it became an official U.S. Holiday. St Andrew's Methodist Church now holds the International Mother's Day Shrine.

Mother’s Day Traditions

Traditions on Mother's Day include going to church, distributing carnations, and dinner with the family. Mother’s Day is the third largest holiday in the United States for sending cards. The greeting card industry estimates that more than 50 percent of American households send greeting cards on this holiday. The holiday has been heavily commercialized by advertisers and retailers, and has been criticized by many folks. In fact, Anna Jarvis would later denounce the holiday’s commercialization and spent the latter part of her life trying to remove it from the calendar.

While dates and celebrations vary worldwide, #MothersDaytraditionally involves presenting moms with flowers, cards, chocolates, and other gifts. Some families organize outings, or have a special meal at home or in a restaurant. Many schools help their students prepare a handmade card or craft for mom.
