NERD NOTE: The moment to make Mother’s Day a holiday was established by Anna Jarvis in 1905 after her mother Ann Reeves Jarvis passed away. In 1908, the first official Mother’s Day observation took place in West Virginia. By 1911, every U.S. state individually observed Mother’s Day and a few years later in 1914, Woodrow Wilson signed a proclamation making Mother’s Day a national holiday. However, the new holiday was quickly commercialized by the greeting card, candy and flower industries. As a result, Anna Jarvis tried to have the holiday rescinded and organized protests and boycotts of Mother’s Day. She died in 1948 in a sanitarium. Anna Jarvis never profited from Mother’s Day. Her medical bills were ironically paid from people in the greeting card and floral industries.
