Featured Holiday – Mother’s Day

Mother’s Day – In the United States, about 150 years ago a Homemaker named Anna Jarvis wanted to bring attention to the impoverished health conditions in her region. She decided to organize a special day to help her cause. She called it “Mothers Work Day.” When she died in 1905 her daughter began to Lobby to create a special day to honor Mothers. Finally, in 1914, Woodrow Wilson signed a bill declaring Mother’s Day a national holiday. Unfortunately, she never wanted it to become a commercialized money maker. She even tried to get the holiday canceled! I have decided not to include any recipes because Mom should NOT cook on her special day! She should be taken out to a nice quiet dinner. Trust me on this one.
