This special day for Mom has been around since 1908; however, it wasn’t until 1914 when U.S. President Woodrow Wilson set the second Sunday in May to be celebrated officially as Mother’s Day. To celebrate this special day, we gathered some “different” ways to celebrate with Mom this weekend. Here’s our guide to Mother’s Day event in Florida.
