First celebrated in Amarillo, Texas on March 5, 1934, Mother-in-Law Day was initiated and promoted by the local Amarillo newspaper's editor. Today, Mother-in-Law Day is recognized annually on the fourth Sunday of each October. Although the holiday has not yet been made official, meaning it has not been officially recognized by the United States Federal Government, its popularity has taken hold across the nation. With celebrations modeled after those observed on Mother's Day and Father's Day, Mother-in-Law Day is meant to be set aside as a day to show your mother-in-law how much you love and appreciate her. It is a day for honoring the person who raised the man or woman you love most in the world, your spouse.
Popular culture has unfortunately given mothers-in-law a bad reputation, placing them at the punch line of many jokes. Most sons and daughters-in-law, however, enjoy positive relationships with their mothers-in-law. Mother-in-Law Day presents the perfect opportunity to celebrate the bond you share with your own. This October, many families will celebrate their mothers-in-law with family dinners, special activities, gifts like candy and jewelry, and by giving flowers.
