5月12日是母亲节。每年五月份的第二个星期日是母亲节。在数百万个家庭中,人们通过各种方式表达对母亲的敬意。

这个节日的起源归功于安娜·贾维斯(Anna Jarvis),她在1899年为她的母亲举办了纪念活动。贾维斯的母亲在西弗吉尼亚的家乡创办了妇女工作坊,以改善卫生条件和健康状况。贾维斯曾争取让“母亲节”成为公认的全国性节日。

1914年,伍德罗·威尔逊总统将母亲节定为正式节日。

Happy Mother’s Day!

Mother’s Day falls on the second Sunday in May every year and became an official U.S. holiday in 1914. In millions of households, mothers will be honored with flowers, greeting cards, candy, a special cake …….

This holiday owes its start to Anna Jarvis, who held a memorial to her mother in 1899. Jarvis’s mother had founded work clubs for women in her home state of West Virginia to improve sanitary and health conditions. Jarvis campaigned to have “Mother’s Day” recognized as a national celebration.

President Woodrow Wilson made Mother's Day official in 1914.
