🎁(Secret event in progress) The Origins of Mother's Day in the U.S. and Parents' Day in Korea

by juseong kim 29 Apr 2024
  1. Mother's Day in the U.S. :

    In 1908, Anna Jarvis successfully established the first official Mother's Day on May 10th, commemorating mothers and their unparalleled contributions. By 1914, President Woodrow Wilson officially designated the second Sunday in May as Mother's Day, solidifying its celebration across the United States.

  2. Parents' Day in Korea :

    Starting in 1955, Korea designated May 8th as Mother's Day, celebrating it for the first time in 1956. The day evolved into Parents' Day in 1973, expanding the appreciation to both mothers and fathers, highlighting the importance of family in Korean culture.

  3. 💐The Tradition of Carnations :

    The tradition of giving red carnations on Parents' Day in Korea has a heartfelt origin. Inspired by Anna Jarvis's gesture of distributing her mother's favorite white carnations, the practice symbolizes love and respect for living parents, while white carnations honor those who have passed.

  4. A Call to Gratitude :

    Despite commercialization concerns, the essence of these celebrations remains a genuine expression of gratitude. Anna Jarvis emphasized visiting parents as the best gift. As Parents' Day approaches, consider reaching out to express your appreciation, perhaps with a call.
