Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA

Everything originates somewhere and spreads from there. That's what geographers call culturl diffusion. Here's an historical marker that allows us to put Mother's Day on the map. The celebration originated in Philadelphia (apologies to West Virginia) in 1908 and became national in 1914. Today, almost 50 countries have an official Mother's Day celebration. [2017]
