Anna Jarvis: Expensive Gift Day

Posted by admin on Sunday, May 14, 2017

Anna Jarvis Money Quote saying in the 1920’s that gift-giving (like Christmas) shouldn’t be the focus of the day she promoted and protected as the ‘Mother of Mother’s Day’. Anna Jarvis said:

To have Mother’s Day the burdensome, wasteful, expensive gift day that Christmas and other special days have become, is not our pleasure. If the American people are not willing to protect Mother’s Day from the hordes of money schemers that would overwhelm it with their schemes, then we shall cease having a Mother’s Day
— Anna Jarvis
