April 27 : 11 days till Mother’s Day

Did you know that the founder of Mother’s Day, Anna Jarvis, was vehemently opposed to the commercialization of the holiday?

“I wanted it to be a day of sentiment, not profit,” she once said. Despite Jarvis’ opposition, Mother’s Day is the second biggest gift-giving holiday in America, preceded only by Christmas. The National Retail Foundation estimates that Americans will spend more than $14 billion a year on Mother’s Day.

Mother’s Day is a time of commemoration and celebration for Mom. It is a time of breakfast in bed, family gatherings, and crayon scribbled “I Love You’s.” So join our Mother’s Day festivities as we present a new “Did You Know?” fact each day as we countdown to Mother’s Day on May 08, 2011!
