In years to come, the history of the emergence of Mother’s Day will remain sweet, if not, sweeter than before. For many who may not know, this special day that honours motherhood was created by Anna Jarvis in 1908.
Anna Jarvis – The Woman Behind Mothers’ Day
Her mother had desired having such a holiday and Anna conscientiously worked towards this one goal upon her mother’s death. She held a memorial ceremony for her mother at a church and sent five hundred white carnations to everyone who attended the service. It was her powerful speech at the Wanamaker’s Store Auditorium that moved her audience and kickstarted public reception of her movement towards Mother’s Day.
This Mother’s Day, and all in years to come, we stay true to its essence.
Anna’s love for her mother was resounding, yet her original meaning for Mother’s Day gradually became misappropriated by the public. White carnations were meant to symbolise the purity of a mother’s love which never dies. The public commercialised carnations and introduced red carnations to honour living mothers and white ones to honour deceased mothers.
“A printed card means nothing except that you are too lazy to write to the woman who has done more for you than anyone in the world. And candy! You take a box to Mother – and then eat most of it yourself. A pretty sentiment.” – Anna Jarvis
Indeed, we should stay true to the essence of Mother’s Day and gift things or do acts of service that will truly make our mothers happy. The focus should be on our mothers, and their influence in our lives, not the surface acts of commemoration.
