Mother’s Day 2016: Bible Quotes, Verses, & Passages

Carnations are associated with Mother's Day because of its founder, Anna Jarvis. On the first Mother's Day in 1908, Jarvis delivered 500 of them at the first celebration at Wanamaker Auditorium at John Wanamaker's mercantile in Philadelphia. After that they became associated with the holiday. Many churches now follow this carnation tradition to this day. (Photo by Dan Kitwood/Getty Images)
