"Mother's Day takes place on the second Sunday in May. It's a celebration of Mom and all things motherhood-related. The first official Mother's Day commemoration was in 1908, in Grafton, West Virginia, organized by Anna Jarvis to honor the sacrifices all mothers make for their children and family. President Woodrow Wilson issued a proclamation in 1914 officially establishing Mother's Day as a national holiday in the United States. The second Sunday in May is also the date of Ma's special day in Canada and many other countries around the world. Sons, daughters and step-children and husbands, partners and grandparents give candy, chocolates, gifts and greeting cards to mothers, step-mothers and mothers-in-law, or take the marvelous matriarchs out for breakfast, brunch, lunch or dinner. Sometimes, offspring even get really organized and helpful and do household chores for their dear old Mama, as the woman of the twenty-four hours enjoys some additional, and much-deserved, sleep.
The Best Card Company's wonderful and wonderfully diverse Mother's Day Assorted Cards collection allows you and the rest of the family, and supportive and admiring friends who know a good mother when they associate with one, to applaud and praise Mom for all that she does, in a variety of different notecard ways. The sensational selection includes touching and tender, sentimental greetings showcasing artful and creative hearts and heart designs, colorful antique playing cards and lovely, vivid, vibrant flowers and floral boutiques. On the more humorous, but still heartfelt, side are notecards emblazoned with witty and appreciative words of Mama glory, and cute, cuddly, warm and fuzzy and funny pictures of panda, giraffe, polar bear, sloth, donkey, horse, fox, swan, gorilla and meerkat Mom and baby animal pairings. There's something for any magnificent mother in these ten card sets, in other words and pictures, to get your fine, fabulous, laudatory message of mirth, merriment and love across in charming and cheering style on Mom's super day of celebration."
