In the UK Mother Sunday was celebrated since the XVII century, and thanks directly for the idea of the Mother’s Day holiday we can two active American women: Julia Ward and Anna Jarvis.
One of them, pacifist Julia Ward, as early as 1872 proposed the concept of celebrating the day of unity of mothers in the struggle for peace, and in 1907, Anna Jarvis wrote letters to state institutions, legislatures and outstanding persons in the United States with the proposal to devote one day a year to the honoring of mothers .
