Mother’s Day is celebrated on the second Sunday in May each year, and is honored in more than 46 countries throughout the world. It has its origins in ancient Pagan festivals, and according to The Legacy Project, the earliest celebrations for Mom were dedicated to Rhea, the mother of the gods in ancient Greece. Social activist Julia Ward Howe (1819-1910) was reportedly the first to call for a day that honored mothers, and in 1870, she wrote a Mother’s Day proclamation for peace.
This year marks the 103rd official Mother’s Day, which was officially established by President Woodrow Wilson in 1914. In his proclamation, according to History.com, President Wilson wrote that Mother’s Day offered a chance to “[publicly express] our love and reverence for the mothers of our country.”
More than 75 million Americans are expected to dine out for Mother’s Day today, making it the most popular day for dining out, according to Politico.
