Some have even called Hering “the father of Mothers’ Day.” The official Mother’s Day holiday arose in the 1900s as a result of the efforts of Anna Jarvis, daughter of Ann Reeves Jarvis.

Following her mother’s 1905 death, Anna Jarvis conceived of Mother’s Day as a way of honoring the sacrifices mothers made for their children.

But once Mother’s Day became a national holiday, it was not long before florists, card companies and other merchants capitalized on its popularity.

In 1873 Howe campaigned for a “Mother’s Peace Day” to be celebrated every June 2.After gaining financial backing from a Philadelphia department store owner named John Wanamaker, in May 1908 she organized the first official Mother’s Day celebration at a Methodist church in Grafton, West Virginia.That same day also saw thousands of people attend a Mother’s Day event at one of Wanamaker’s retail stores in Philadelphia.This custom eventually faded in popularity before merging with the American Mother’s Day in the 1930s and 1940s.The origins of Mother’s Day as celebrated in the United States date back to the 19th century.
