Mother's Day in Chicago

The history of Mother’s Day as we celebrate it in the U.S. goes back to the 1800's. Before the civil war Ann Reeves Jarvis started a day to help teach West Virginian women how to take care of their children. These clubs unified in that area of the country during the Civil War. In 1868, she started “Mothers’ Friendship Day,” where mothers gathered with Union and Confederate soldiers in order to reconcile after the war.

The official Mother’s Day holiday came about in the 1900s due to efforts of  Anna Jarvis, daughter of Ann Reeves Jarvis. Following her mother’s death in 1905, Anna Jarvis thought of Mother’s Day as a way of honoring the sacrifices mothers made for their children.

Celebrate your mom at any of these amazing places.
