Mother's Day Resources & Printables

Mother’s Day is celebrated on the second Sunday of May, and honors mothers, motherhood, and important female figures in our lives. Its origins can be traced back to ancient Greek and Roman festivals that honored mother goddesses, and ‘Mothering Sunday’ traditions from England in the Middle Ages. In the United States, Mother's Day started with Anna Jarvis, who campaigned relentlessly for the creation of the holiday in honor of her own mother.
