1. Anna Jarvis was also a woman that may have been behind our traditional Mother's Day celebration on the second Sunday of May. Anna never had any children, but wanted to carry out her own mother's dream of having a day just for mums. Anna tirelessly campaigned and on May 8th, 1914 President Woodrow Wilson signed a Joint Resolution designating the second Sunday in May as Mother's Day. Thanks Anna! Women around the globe celebrate you!
2. Over one fourth of all flowers purchased year 'round are purchased for Mother's Day.
