Happy Mother’s Day 2016

Happy Mother’s Day to everyone from the Colorado Traveling Ducks.   Mother’s Day became an official holiday in the United States in 1914 when President Woodrow Wilson signed the declaration.   In the United States Mother’s Day is celebrated the second Sunday in May.   In the UK Mother’s Day is celebrated the fourth Sunday of Lent.   Mother’s Day honors mothers and the influence of mothers in society.   Mother’s Day is expanded to honor mothers, daughters, sisters, aunts, grandmothers, and women in general.   We, the Colorado Traveling Ducks will be proud to take the human women to dinner today.   We ducks, and our human males, appreciate all the human females do for us and society in general.   Happy Mother’s Day to all.

Happy Mother’s Day

Colorado Traveling Ducks and their humans wish a Happy Mother’s Day to moms everywhere.

Wikipedia says Mother’s Day started in the United States in 1908 when Anna Jarvis held a memorial for her mother in Grafton, West Virginia.  She was successful in 1914 to have Mother’s Day recognized as a holiday in the United States.

Mother’s Day is celebrated in many countries of the world, mostly in the spring.

Happy Mother’s Day!!
