Mother’s Day 2016: All the Memes You Need to See

Modern Mother's Day grew to the international level because of the greeting card industry. Despite its success, this embittered the younger Jarvis who saw the commercialization of the holiday as everything she was against. According to the Deseret News: "Jarvis was a bit irked to see Wilson get credit for Mother's Day. “When the national government recognized it, it was already being celebrated,” said Dr. Katharine Lane Antolini, assistant professor of history and international studies at West Virginia Wesleyan College. “It bothered Jarvis when Wilson got credit for establishing it.” Jarvis had envisioned a sweet, even reverential holiday where children would visit their mothers or send handwritten letters. In a thank-you note to Wilson she wrote of a “great Home Day of our country for sons and daughters to honor their mothers and fathers and homes in a way that will perpetuate family ties and give emphasis to true home life."
