Americans celebrate the holiday Mother’s Day with gifts, cards, and flowers. In the United States, the holiday is always on the second Sunday in May. It is a day many people take out their mothers to dinner, bring them flowers, or meet for Brunch East Village. Mother’s Day is one of the busiest days in the restaurant industry, with elaborate brunches being the most popular dining choice in many cities. |
Mother’s Day has been celebrated in the US since 1914. In the latter half of the nineteenth century, cries for a mothering Sunday were made during the Civil War by Julia Ward Howe and Anna M. Jarvis, in an effort to promote peace and enable mothers to be reunited with their family members during wartime. However, it wasn’t until Woodrow Wilson created it as a national holiday that it took on its current significance, of Americans honoring their mothers.
Many churches had been holding church services honoring mothers in the 8 years prior to it being made an official holiday. According to these traditions, people wore or were given white carnations if their mother had died and either pink or red carnations if their mother was still living. This tradition has evolved into the practice of honoring deceased mothers with white carnations, still carried out today in many funerals.
However, tradition aside, Mother’s Day is a day to think about what mothers have done and the sacrifices that they have made. Taking your mother to a lovely brunch in East Village or attending your mother’s church service that day is a much-appreciated way of showing love and respect to mothers.
