If you are alive and reading this you have at least two people to thank for that, mom and dad. Mother’s Days is honored and celebrated throughout the world. Ceremonies honoring mothers are traced back to the ancient Greeks and Romans, who held celebrations in honor of the mother goddesses Rhea. In more recent times the early Christians held festival known as “Mothering Sunday” on the fourth Sunday in Lent, originally observed as a time when the faithful would return to their “mother church.” The American incorporation of Mother’s Day was aided by West Virginian, Anna Reeves Jarvis, in 1908 and became an official U.S. holiday in 1914 when President Woodrow Wilson recognized “Mother’s Day” as the second Sunday in May. For a perspective on the importance of Mother’s Day consider how phone traffic spikes thirty-seven percent and twenty-four percent of all purchased flowers arrive on Mom’s special day. That’s right, the floral industry rakes in over $1.9 billion dollars on each year on your annual gift to Mom. While phone calls and flowers have become stable, try these five spots in Miami, FL, to treat mom on her special day.
