 History of Mother's Day: Mothering Sunday The more recent history of Mothers Day dates back to 1600s in England. Here a Mothering Sunday was celebrated annually on the fourth Sunday of Lent (the 40 day period leading up to Easter) to honor mothers. After a prayer service in church to honor Virgin Mary, children brought gifts and flowers to pay tribute to their own mothers.

In 1868, Ann Reeves Jarvis organized "Mother's Friendship Day" for the purpose of mothers gathering with former Union and Confederate soldiers to promote reconciliation.
Julia Ward Howe, an abolitionist and suffragette, wrote the "Mother's Day Proclamation," in 1870 as a call to action for mothers to unite in promoting world peace.

Mother’s Day was founded by Anna Jarvis of Philadelphia and first officially observed in 1908 to honor motherhood and family life during the early days of feminism. Supported by John Wannamaker, Mother’s Day was given federal recognition in 1914.

Anna Jarvis, following her mother's death in 1905, conceived the concept of Mother's Day as a way to honor mothers for the sacrifices they made for their children.
Anna Jarvis gained the financial support of Philadelphia department store owner John Wanamaker in May 1908, subsequently organizing the first official Mother's Day celebration at a Methodist church in West Virginia. On the same day, thousands of people attended a Mother's Day event at Wanamaker's stores in Philadelphia.
After her success, Anna Jarvis worked to have her holiday added to the national holiday calendar.  She began a letter writing campaign to newspapers and prominent politicians urging them to adopt a special day to honor motherhood.  By 1912, many towns, states and even churches had adopted Mother's Day and Anna Jarvis established the Mother's Day International Association to promote her cause.
