Mother’s Day in Costa Mesa

Posted on April 29, 2014 | 9:57am

Each year, mothers and motherhood are celebrated on Mother’s Day.  This year, the holiday is Sunday, May 11.  Mother’s Day is recognized and celebrated in many countries throughout the world.  In the United States, Mother’s Day is always in the spring.  The modern celebration of moms on Mother’s Day in the US began in 1908 when a woman named Anna Jarvis held a memorial for her mother.  Jarvis continued to campaign to make Mother’s Day a nationally recognized holiday. In 1914, her vision became reality.  People celebrate Mother’s Day in many different types of ways, but the common thread is to make your mom, or motherly figure, feel special.  It is a day to show how much you care.
