May 8, 2016 is Mother’s Day. This day was created to honor moms, and the influence mothers have in society. It is always celebrated the second Sunday of May. Anna Jarvis started the modern Mother’s Day in 1908 after she held a memorial for her mother. To celebrate, you could give your mom a nice card, take her out to eat, or let her relax. Listed below are some themed events and restaurants.
