Anna Jarvis was an American girl and she had a kind mother. Anna loved her mother so much and helped her with the housework. In 1905, Anna's mother died on the second Sunday of May. She was so sad that she wanted to do something in commemoration of her mother. So in 1907, Anna asked the government to designate the day of her mother's death as a holiday. In 1910, West Virginia was the first state to officially celebrate Mother's Day. And in 1914, President Woodrow Wilson designated the second Sunday of May as the official national holiday in America. Then, other countries also designate it as Mother's Day to commemorate all mothers.
That's the story of Mother's Day.
