May


May Day marks the middle between the first day of Spring and the Summer Solstice.

During the Haymarket Affair of 1886, more than a dozen people were killed during a 3 day strike and rally. U.S. Labor Unions had agreed upon a general nationwide strike on May 1, 1886 in support of an 8 hour work day. One such rally, held outside the McCormick Harvesting Machine Company, Chicago Illinois, became violent  when police fired into the crowd of striking workers. Outraged, the worker's organized another rally the next day at Haymarket Square. The rally became violent when a bomb was thrown in a crowd of police.  Seven officers were killed. A very public trial ensued which ended in the public hanging of four anarchists.


Happy Mother's Day


Mother's Day is 100 years old this year!

Mother's Day was founded for mourning women to remember fallen soldiers and work for peace. And when the holiday went commercial, it's greatest champion, Anna Jarvis, gave everything to fight it, dying penniless and in a sanitarium.   It all started in the 1850's when West Virginia women's organizer Ann Reeves Jarvis-Anna's Mother-held Mother's Day work clubs to improve sanitary conditions and try to lower infant mortality by fighting disease and curbing milk contamination. The group also tended both sides during the U. S. Civil War.

In 1914, U. S. President Woodrow Wilson officially set aside the second Sunday in May for the holiday of Mothers Day.

Anna's idea of an intimate day for Mother's quickly ended when it became a commercial gold mine centering on the buying of flowers, candy and greeting cards. Anna attacked Eleanor Roosevelt for using Mother's Day to raise funds for charities. In 1923 she crashed a convention for confectioners in Philadelphia. "The American War Mother's", which still exists, used Mother's Day for fund raising and sold carnations...so she crashed their convention in Philadelphia in 1925 and was arrested for disturbing the peace.

Anna's attempts to reform Mother's Day continued until at least the early 1940's. In 1948 she died at 84 in Philadelphia's Marshall Square Sanitarium.

According to the National Retail Federation, Americans will spend an average of nearly $163 million dollars on Mom this year!

Approximately 133 million Mother's Day cards are sold annually according to Hallmark!
