the latest issue of bust magazine (my newest addiction) had a great article about how mother's day came to be. contrary to popular belief, it was started by woman who wasn't even a mother! she just wanted a day for everyone to celebrate mom's greatness, and the commercial companies took off with it. she was incredibly upset by the consumerism and the men who tried to make the holiday about greeting cards and candy, insisting that these things don't show appreciation.
