A Legacy of Love: The Origins of Mother’s Day

The history of Mother’s Day in the Texas Hill Country is intertwined with the broader story of how this special day came to be celebrated nationwide. While the modern holiday traces its roots back to the efforts of Anna Jarvis in the early 20th century, the spirit of honoring mothers has deep cultural significance in Texas.

In the Hill Country, where family values and traditions run deep, Mother’s Day has long been a time for communities to come together and show appreciation for the matriarchs who play such a vital role in shaping their families and communities. From small gatherings at home to larger community events, Texans have always found creative ways to celebrate the mothers in their lives.
