Was Mother’s Day created by a daughter or a son? It seems both claim they founded Mother’s Day. The second Sunday in May which was designated by President Woodrow Wilson in 1914 became a day to celebrate and honor mothers.
Then in 1925 the Society of War Mothers investigated who deserved the honor of founding Mother’s Day. They concluded Frank Hering.
So whoever founded it:
We honor Mom who carried us 9 months in her womb and nurtured us through the years of our youth; we would not be who we are today if not for Mom. #thanksmom
To all the moms out there: Happy Mother’s Day! Suzy B
