Mother’s Day History

May is here… Mother’s Day is too. May 8, 2011 is the day to celebrate that special someone who has helped and guided us throughout our lives. That person who held our hand when we took our first step, the one who applauded and filled her heart with happiness when we pronounced our first word.
One of the earliest historical records of a society celebrating a Mother deity can be found among the ancient Egyptians, who held an annual festival to honor the goddess Isis, who was commonly regarded as the Mother of the pharaohs.
Mother’s Day takes us back to the year 1908 when a U.S. Senator from Nebraska, Elmer Burkett, proposed making Mother’s Day a national holiday at the request of the Young Men’s Christian Association (YMCA). The proposal was defeated, but by 1909 forty-six states were holding Mother’s Day services as well as parts of Canada and Mexico. It’s celebrated on different days and dates around the world. Most commonly, Mother’s Day occurs on the second Sunday in May.
It’s this day that Mothers are lavished with presents and special attention from their families, friends and loved ones. Among the most common gifts are flowers, poems, crafts, cards, roses, gift baskets, chocolates, trips, hugs and kisses.
We tend to run out of ideas as to what special gift to give our mother this year. Are you in that situation? Don’t worry, J&B has the solution to the problem. Allow us to clean for your mother on a special day by checking our Maid Service at
