We thank God for them and strive to love more like them.

The modern holiday was first celebrated in 1907, when Anna Jarvis
held the first Mother’s Day
service of worship at Andrews Methodist Episcopal Church in Grafton, West Virginia.] Andrew’s Methodist
Church now holds the
International Mother’s Day Shrine. Her
campaign to make Mother’s Day a recognized holiday in the
United States began in 1905, the year her mother,
Ann Reeves
Jarvis
, died.

DOLL MADE IT’S DEBUT ON THIS DAY IN 1959

Barbie 35th Anniversary Reproduction of Original 1959 Barbie image 1
On March 9, 1959, the first Barbie doll went  on display at the
American Toy Fair in
New York City.

Eleven inches tall, with a waterfall of blond hair, Barbie was the
first mass-produced toy doll in the United States with adult
features. The woman behind Barbie was Ruth Handler, who co-
founded Mattel, Inc. with her husband in 1945. After seeing her
young daughter ignore her baby dolls to play make-believe with
paper dolls of adult women, Handler realized there was an
important niche in the market for a toy that allowed little girls
to imagine the future.
