Il day in which this anniversary is celebrated is the second Sunday of May. The origins are very remote: in ancient times it was a symbol of a transition from winter cold to the warmth of spring life. It was also an opportunity to thank the Great Mother, a female divinity venerated for being the bearer of life. In modern times, the initial idea was the American Anna Jarvis who, in 1908, asked to establish a Mother's Day in honor of her mother, a pacifist activist. An idea that was well received and spread on a large scale until, in 1914, the President of the United States Woodrow Wilson formalized the holiday as a national holiday. From that year on, the custom of giving a pink rose to the mother on this day spread like a gold spot.
