Mother's Day Holiday Canada


 
Information About Mother's Day Holiday:
Mother's Day is always the second Sunday in beautiful month of May.

Mother's Day in Canada is a day where we take some time to thank the person that brought us into this world and/or cared for us when we were young and now when we are grownups.

Mother's Day Facts
  • The first Mother's Day observance was a church service honoring Mrs. Anna Reese Jarvis, held at Anna Jarvis's request in Grafton, West Virginia, and in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, on May 10, 1908.
  • Carnations, her mother's favorite flowers, were supplied at that first service by Miss Jarvis. White carnations were chosen because they represented the sweetness, purity and endurance of mother love. Red carnations, in time, became the symbol of a living mother. White ones now signify that one's mother has died.
  • The House of Representatives in May, 1913, unanimously adopted a resolution requesting the President, his Cabinet, members of Congress, and all officials of the federal government to wear a white carnation on Mother's Day.
