Mother’s Day has been one of the most popular American holidays since 1908, when Anna Jarvis began her campaign to have Mother’s Day recognized as a U.S. holiday. She wanted a day set aside to acknowledge “the person who has done more for you than anyone in the world.”
She eventually thought the holiday became too commercial, but ask most mothers out there how they expect to celebrate Mother’s Day, and it’s not expensive gifts they’ll tell you about — it’s time with their family.
Thanks to Maya Borenstein of LittleThings, whose readers are mostly women and mothers, this easy-to-read infographic was created. (It includes Mother’s Day gift ideas too – perfect!)
