Mother's Day is a observed on the 2nd Sunday of May in the United States. Mother's Day was created by Anna Jarvis in 1908 as a day to honor one's mother. President Woodrow Wilson made it an official national holiday in 1914. In the United States, Mother's Day remains one of the biggest days for sales of flowers and greeting cards, and it is also the biggest holiday for long distance telephone calls. Moreover, Mother's Day yields the 3rd highest church attendance after Christmas Eve and Easter. Many worshipers celebrate the day with carnations, colored if the mother is living and white if she has been deceased.
