Today is Motherâ€™s Day! Mother's Day is our opportunity to celebrate moms, wives, daughters, aunts, grandmothers, sisters, and all the wonderful people who have mothered us over the years. Send a free Motherâ€™s Day eCard to the important women in your life to let them know how much they mean to you!
In England and other parts of Europe, people have been celebrating â€śMothering Sundayâ€ť since the 16th century. Our modern American holiday is a relatively recent tradition in comparison. In 1912, a woman named Anna Jarvis from Grafton, West Virginia declared the first Motherâ€™s Day in the United States.
Tell your mom how much she means to you today and show your appreciation with a beautiful gift, bouquet of flowers, or breakfast in bed! Happy Mother's Day!
