Princeton, May 1, 2015: Do you know why we celebrate Moms every May? The history of Mother's Day is centuries old and the earliest Mother's Day celebrations can be traced back to the spring celebrations of ancient Greece in honor of Rhea, the Mother of the Gods. During the 1600's, the early Christians in England celebrated a day to honor Mary, the mother of Christ. In the United States, the modern interpretation of Mother’s Day was most influenced by Ann Marie Reeves Jarvis, a young Appalachian homemaker who, starting in 1858, had attempted to improve sanitation through what she called "Mothers Friendship Day".

It was Jarvis' daughter, Anna Jarvis, who finally succeeded in introducing Mother's Day in the sense as we celebrate it today. She hoped Mother's Day would increase respect for parents and strengthen family bonds.
As a result of her efforts the first mother's day was observed on May 10, 1908, by a church service honoring the late Mrs. Reese Jarvis, in the Andrews Methodist Church in Grafton, West Virginia.

When you consider all Moms do for their children, it’s staggering. From care and compassion to a swift discipline when we needed it…Mom is always there. Moms love us no matter where we go and what we do. Isn’t this the year to show Mom that you appreciate everything that she does? We can’t think of much else that better says ‘thank you, you’re wonderful’ than DIAMONDS! That’s right, bling for Mom.
