I hope everyone had a nice Mother's Day.
England was one of the first countries to set aside a day to recognize mothers. In the eighteenth century when many people worked as household servants for the rich, "Mothering Sunday" was reserved for them to return home to be with their mothers. Though this custom stopped when the Industrial Revolution altered the working and living patterns of the people, one Sunday for Mothers was established as a holiday in the twentieth Century.
The day became a holiday in America in 1911 but was not official until 1914 when President Wilson proclaimed the first national Mother's Day to be held on the second Sunday of May.
