Happy Mother’s Day from the L-Tron team!
L-Tron would like to wish moms everywhere a Happy Mother’s Day!
A history of Mother’s Day:
The first Mother’s Day church service was held in West Virginia in 1907, the same day a special service with more than 15,000 attendees was held in Philadelphia. An increasing number of celebrations and services were held over the following seven years, until Mother’s Day officially became a national holiday on May 9, 1914. The U.S. President at the time, Woodrow Wilson, chose to honor mothers throughout the country by thanking them for the hard work, love and sacrifice that it takes to raise children.
To this day, the public celebrates Mother’s Day (even those who reject the commercialism that runs rampant during this “Hallmark holiday”), spending over $23 Billion as a nation on cards, flowers and gifts. In fact, an annual survey by the National Retail Foundation estimates that 86% of Americans will celebrate the holiday this year. To say the least, mothers are valued members of society – at least on this particular day each year!
