Happy Mother’s Day! [VIDEO]

Mother's Day

As we celebrate mothers, motherhood, and the influence of mothers in society this weekend, you might be surprised about how Mother’s Day became a holiday.

Mother’s Day has a rather interesting history. It was created by Anna Jarvis in 1908; she wanted a day to celebrate mothers. The concept of Mother’s Day didn’t take off until John Wanamaker, the wealthy Philadelphia-area department store owner, financed her Mother’s Day campaign from 1908 until 1914. In 1914, President Woodrow Wilson officially made Mother’s Day a holiday. As the years went on, Anna Jarvis ended up hating Mother’s Day because it quickly became over-commercialized — which was rather ironic since a department store owner, who greatly benefited financially from the holiday, helped her for a number of years.

One of my favorite Randy Travis songs is “Angels” — perfect for Mother’s Day. From all of us at Cat Country 107.3, Happy Mother’s Day!
