On Mothering Sunday the servants had the day off and encouraged to return home and spend the day with their mothers. M
In the United States Mother's Day was first suggested in 1872 by Julia Ward Howe as a day dedicated to peace. Until 1914 when Ana Jarvis, with the help of the church, persuaded President Woodrow Wilson to make the second Sunday of May a national holiday in honor of the anniversary of her mother’s death. However, many countries celebrate Mother's Day at different times throughout the year - except Denmark, Finland, Italy, Turkey, Australia, and Belgium who also celebrate Mother's Day on the second Sunday of May.
What would mother like on her special day? Beads of course! Make a special necklace or bracelet as a gift for your mother and mother-in-law this year – or purchase one already made. Jewelry is always appreciated, and gains sentimental value with age allowing Mother to always remember who it came from. Pearls are great, but any pink or warm-colored stone jewelry would be appreciated!
Pearl jewelry is good for mother - see our selection at MrBead.com and MrBead.co.uk
