Mother’s Day Pin

On Mother’s Day, we honor mothers and motherhood across America. This Mother’s Day pin features a carnation, the traditional flower of the holiday, and the name of Anna Jarvis, the founder of the holiday. The first holiday was first celebrated in 1908 by Jarvis, who held a memorial for her mother at the St. Andrew’s Methodist Church in Grafton, West Virginia. Jarvis used carnations as a decorative flower during this service. In 1914, President Woodrow Wilson signed a proclamation designating Mother’s Day as a national holiday.
