Where Did Mother’s Day Come From?

We’ve been so busy giving you gift ideas and sharing lessons our moms taught us, we’ve forgotten the meaning of Mother’s Day.

Mother’s Day became a U.S. holiday in 1914 after Anna Jarvis spent years sending letters to public officials urging them to set aside a day to honor mothers. Her own mother died in 1905.

The Hottest Single Celebrity Moms

Date.com polled their male and female readers and asked them to name which famous single moms they found hottest. After I read the names of the chosen MILFs, I realized the word “single” is the operative term in question.
