Mother's Day in Miami is a busy day in the restaurant industry. It is a day when many families treat their mothers and celebrate their contribution to the strength of a family by eating out. From a study done by the National Restaurant Association in 2013, nearly one-quarter of adult Americans will go out to eat on Mother's Day and over half will order restaurant takeout or delivery. This makes Mother's Day one of the busiest days in the restaurant industry. From this study, the mothers polled liked to eat seafood, steak or barbecue on their special day.

Any man who is taking out his mother and is leading a large family to the restaurant can use this study to make a stylish strategy to impress his mother or mother-in-law. To add a bit more appreciation than simply offering greeting cards or flowers, family members could also impress Mom with some fun facts about the history of Mother's Day:

Mother's Day was meant to be a special interest movement

Social activists after the Civil War like Anna Jarvis and Julia Ward Howe made up a lobbying movement to make Mother's Day a National holiday, but not for glorification, rather a push for peace. Ward Howe published her Mother's Day proclamation of 1870 where she called on all mothers to advocate for peace so they didn't lose any more of their sons. Anna Jarvis created the day to celebrate the memory of her mother and celebrated the first official Mother's Day at St. Andrews Episcopal church in Grafton, West Virginia in 1908. The church is now also known as the International Mother's Day shrine.

Ward Howe was a leading advocate for women's suffrage and her and Jarvis both felt it was important to highlight the contribution of a mother to the success of a family. With this passion, every man and son should convey this to their mothers every day of the year and cap it on Mother's Day.
