The practice of honoring of motherhood is rooted in antiquity, from honoring Mother Goddesses in Ancient Egypt, Greece and Rome, to 17th century England's declaration of Mothering Day during Lenten celebrations. The initial idea for a U.S. Mother's Day came from Julia Ward Howe's pacifist Mother's Day Proclamation in 1870. As a result of Anna M. Jarvis' campaign for Mother's Day, Woodrow Wilson signed it into national observance in 1914, declaring the second Sunday in May as Mother's Day. It is now the busiest day of the year for phone calls in the U.S.
