Mother’s Day story
However, the celebration we continue today has its origins closer to America. Especially in 1873 women from 18 cities gathered together and held a special meeting for this date. Later, activist Ana Jarvis, in 1907, wanted to dedicate one day of the year to her late mother, though not just to her, but to all mothers in the country.
Little by little, the tradition became so strong that it spread across America. But it wasn’t until 1914, when President Woodrow Wilson decreed that Mother’s Day be celebrated every second Sunday in May. Soon, this festival was adopted by other countries, so it was indicated in their annual calendar.
A detailed list of countries whose date is the second Sunday of the month includes, except for Peru, Germany, Australia, Austria, Belgium, Brazil, Chile, China, Canada, Colombia (except Cúcuta), Croatia, Cuba, Denmark, Ecuador, USA, Estonia, Finland, Greece , Netherlands, Honduras, Italy, Japan, Latvia, Puerto Rico, Ukraine, Uruguay, Switzerland, Czech Republic, New Zealand and Venezuela.
