Mother’s Day is huge, celebrate your mother or face the consequences. The date of commemoration varies between countries. In the United States, Julia Ward Howe, author of “Battle Hymn of the Republic”, suggested the date in 1870 to honor peace. It later became a household celebration.
She inspired the foundation for the global event we know today.
In the US it’s celebrated the second Sunday of May, and this year it’s on May 12. We’ve made a list of suggestions so you can make sure yours unforgettable.
