母親節的由來要從美國20世紀一位和平主義者Ann Jarvis說起，Ann Jarvis的母親過世後Ann Jarvis在格拉夫頓的衛理主教會教堂，這是他首次發起把母親節當成節日的活動，而為什麼母親節是5月第2個星期天，是因為星期天最接近她母親的忌日。而色康乃馨是Ann Jarvis最喜歡的花，也成為這個節日的象徵。
Mother's Day began with Ann Jarvis, a pacifist in the 20th century, who was at the Methodist Episcopal Church in Grafton after the death of Ann Jarvis's mother, the first time he had launched a campaign to make Mother's Day a holiday, and why Mother's Day was the second Sunday in May because Sunday was the closest Sunday to her mother's day. Color carnations are Ann's favorite flowers and have become a symbol of the festival.
『Mother’s Day』?『Mothers’ Day』?
「母親節不是頌揚所有媽媽，而是頌揚你認識最棒的媽媽，也就是你媽。這就是為什麼Ann Jarvis強調單數的『Mother’s Day』，而不是複數的『Mothers’ Day』。」
Ann Jarvis specifically noted that "Mother's" should "be a singular possessive, for each family to honor its own mother, not a plural possessive commemorating all mothers in the world."
祝大家母親節快樂 Happy Mother’s Day
