Mother’s Day History and Traditions in the USA

The very first Mother’s Day in the USA took place on May 9, 1914. That year, President Woodrow Wilson invited the US citizens to give thank you to all mothers of the country, and their mothers first of all, of course. Since then, the tradition has become annual and is appreciated by the citizens.
The creator of the holiday in the USA is Anna Maria Jarvis. She brought this holiday to life as a tribute to her own mother. Later, when the holiday became too commercialized Anna became its fierce enemy.
Watch a short and amusing video from the channel History about Anna’s story:
The most common tradition on Mother’s Day in the USA is to visit your mother and bring her a small gift and flowers (most often, red carnations). Also, people wear flowers on this day. The color of the flower shows whether one’s mother is alive (pink, red) or not with them anymore (white).
Those, whose mothers passed, bring white flowers (carnations) to their graves.
