The following year, Wilson received authorization to proclaim Mother’s Day as an annual national observance. History records that the campaign for a nationwide observance of Mother’s Day began in the person of Anna Jarvis, a lady with dual residences in Grafton, W Va., and Philadelphia, Pa. Ms. Jarvis is believed to have chosen the second Sunday in May for Mother’s Day, and to have begun the custom of wearing a carnation in honor of the holiday. The custom still exists today. A white carnation is worn to signify a living mother. A red, pink or other colored carnation means the wearer’s mother has died. Churches in both of Ms. Jarvis’ hometowns held Mother’s Day celebrations on May IO, 1908. The service at Andrews Methodist Episcopal Church in Grafton was held in honor of Ms. Jarvis’ own mother, Mrs. Anna Reeves Jarvis. During the General Conference of the Methodist Episcopal Church in Minneapolis, Minn., in 1912, a delegate from Andrews Church introduced a resolution recognizing Anna Jarvis as the founder of Mother’s Day. The resolution also suggested the second Sunday in May as the adopted day. Hot actual sue ©JJC Ferrara Co.. Inc Mother's Love try special pin/pendant for a mother of any age.
