Americans have been celebrating Mother’s Day since the Civil War, when a social activist named Julia Ward Howe created a “Mother’s Day Proclamation.” What she said in it was that mothers promote “The great and general interests of peace”, and this was the beginning of Mother’s Day. In the early 1900s a woman from Philadelphia named Anna Maria Jarvis pushed for a national holiday to honor all mothers. Finally, in 1917, President Woodrow Wilson officially made the 2nd Sunday in May Mother’s Day. Stetson is proud to support all mothers in everything they do because without them we wouldn’t be where we are today. If you are in need of a great Mother’s Day gift idea, then Stetson is the way to go. They have beautiful women’s summer hats that your mom is sure to love. Just be sure to let your mom know how much she means to you on this day because they definitely cannot ever hear it enough!
