Happy Mother’s Day
Dear Moms near and far,
Ever asked yourself, who invented Mother’s Day in the USA? This year I checked it and found out: ANNA JARVIS of Philadelphia, whose mother had organized women’s groups to promote friendship and health, originated Mother’s Day. On May 12, 1908, she held a memorial service at her late mother’s church in Grafton, West Virginia. It became an official U.S. Holiday in 1914.
It’s probably the day, where the most flower bouquets get sold and are offered to moms by their husbands and kids, to make up for all the trouble they cause during the year.
We wish you a wonderful Mother’s Day weekend!
Namaste, RoxAnn and Rolf
