Mother’s Day Quiz

Mother’s Day QuizIn the United States, Mother’s Day has become as American as, well, the apple pies that some moms bake. Believe it or not, that wasn’t always the case. Up until 1914, when this special day was designated a national holiday, there was no official celebration to honor moms. Of course, families didn’t need the government’s stamp of approval to make mom feel special, but Mother’s Day certainly is a great reminder for sons, daughters and families to honor these special women. Take our Mother’s Day Quiz to see if you’re as smart as your mother always said you were.
