Just in case you are not aware, forget or don't know that mother day was initiated by Anna Jarvis (an activist) in 1908.

Then, Anna Jarvis worked and campaigned tirelessly to establish Mother Day as a national holiday.

After 6 years, her efforts bore fruit in 1914 when it officially gained recognition in the United States.

Mother’s Day serves as an opportunity to express gratitude and honor both mothers and maternal figures.

People often give something to their mothers, few examples are:
- flowers (especially carnations), 
gifts
- cards, 
- candy
- or prepare meals for their loves.
