Interestingly, Mother’s Day was created by Anna Jarvis, who didn’t have kids herself, according to History.com. But she really felt like women needed a day to commemorate them, since back in the early 1900s men always got most of the holidays and the attention. Once her idea became a national holiday though, she regretted it because it became so commercialized. She even tried to have it removed from the calendar. But now, all these years later, we still celebrate moms on Mother’s Day. And this year more than ever, with all the craziness going on in the world, it’s important that you take time and let your mom know just how much you appreciate her.
