It's celebration time for all those wonderful mommies out there, Happy Mother's Day! On this special day, moms and mother figures are showered with gifts like flowers, cards, chocolate to show how much they are appreciated. In the United States this celebration takes place on the second Sunday in May. The holiday began in the early 20th century, with the first observance occurring in 1908. Mother's Day came to be when Anna Jarvis commemorated her mom at St. Andrew's Methodist Church in West Virginia. Jarvis wanted to honor her mother by continuing the activism work she had started and felt all mother's needed to be recognized as well.

Jarvis was successful in establishing the holiday, but when companies started commercializing Mother's Day, she backtracked. By the 1920s, Hallmark Cards and other companies started selling cards which Jarvis believed shifted the origins of the celebration to profits instead of sentiment. Jarvis then started organizing boycotts on these companies and made threats of lawsuits. Ms. Jarvis trademarked phrases like "second Sunday in May" and "Mother's Day." She said that "Mother's" should be "a singular possessive" so each individual could honor their own mother and not all mothers.

In Mexico, Mother's Day is always celebrated on May 10. The first official celebration of the holiday was on May 10, 1922. El Día De La Madre has taken religious undertones with images of La Virgen de Guadalupe and Virgin Maria, mother of God, used as symbols of the commemoration. It is customary to play "Las Mañanitas" for all mothers on this special day.
