Trivia Time: Mother’s Day Edition

Posted: May 10, 2011 by Keith Stone in Mother's Day, trivia

Mama Stone had a great weekend. Breakfast in bed. Flowers. Poems. That’s just the way I treat my ladies. A woman named Anna Jarvis created Mother’s Day in 1908, but later became one of its biggest critics after it became highly commercialized by the greeting card companies. That leads us to our question. Get it right and I won’t kiss your mama. The answer is after the jump.

What year did Mother’s Day become an official national holiday in the United States? (and a hint: it’s after 1908)

Answer: 1914
