Mother's Day is an U.S. annual holiday that honors mothers, motherhood and maternal appreciation on the second Sunday in May. Motherís Day is celebrated on different days in other countries. Father's Day is the equivalent day for fathers. On May 9, 1014, President Woodrow Wilson announced a proclamation calling upon Americans to give a public declaration of honor to mothers by celebrating Mother's Day. Congress passed legislation designating the second Sunday in May as Mother's Day. Mother's Day is now celebrated with gifts, visits, taking mother to a restaurant and flowers.
