"A Gift From The Heart for Mother's Day" Activity trackers from Garmin. 'We love mothers!' [Hidden message: we moms are overweight and sedentary?]
Shoppers Drug Mart: fragrances and cosmetics, (don't all moms want this?) and free shipping. I haven't worn perfume in ages. It's verboten in many places.
The national effort to create Mother’s Day began in the early 1900s by a woman named Anna Jarvis. Anna’s mother was a peace activist who cared for wounded soldiers during the American Civil War. Anna wanted to honour her mother by setting aside a day to honour all mothers. She believed they were “the person who has done more for you than anyone in the world.”
By 1911 all US states began to observe the day. In 1914, President Woodrow made Mother’s Day a National Holiday to honor mothers. Mother’s Day was adopted by other countries, and it is now celebrated all over the world, by 180 countries.
