Mother's Day is celebrated in US. It is on the second Sunday in May. It is a day to honor mothers. On that day mothers usually receive flowers and cards. On the cards, children all write,“Thanks, Mom”，“To the best mother in the world” and so on.
Where did the idea for the holiday come from? We should thank Miss Anna M Jarvis. It is she who brought up the idea of having such a day. She lived in West Virginia. Her Mother died on May 9, 1905. On the anniversary after her mother's death, she invited some friends to informal memorial meeting.
In 1907, a church service was held on her mother's death anniversary, Miss Anna M Jarvis' love for her mother moved other people. Besides, she wrote letters to important person suggesting a public holiday to honor all mothers. In 1913, the United States Congress agreed that the second Sunday in May be made Mother's Day. Finally, the decision was announced by President Wilson.
