Happy (Early) Mother's Day from The Maddox Law Firm!

Mother's Day was declared by Proclamation a national holiday by President Woodrow Wilson on May 9, 1914. In the Proclamation the people of the US were asked "to display a flag at their home or other suitable places on the second Sunday in May as a public expression of our love and reverence for the mothers of our country." Soon after this came the commercialization of the holiday, and thus today we have the billion dollar industry of Mother's Day. Today an estimated $2.6 billion is spent on flowers, $1.5 billion is spent on frivolous gifts and $68 million is spent on greeting cards. Not sure this is what President Wilson had in mind, but it's always the thought that counts. Happy Mother's Day!
