Mother’s Day Chocolate from Wockenfuss Candies

Wockenfuss is one of the oldest candy makers in Maryland. So we know a thing or two about chocolate. We also know that you may not have the time to make it to one of our many convenient locations before Mother’s Day. That is why we also sell all of our delicious chocolate specialties online! Just allow 3-6 business days for shipping. What could be easier!?

Wockenfuss has been a Maryland tradition since 1915. Let us help make this Mother’s Day one yours will never forget!

The History of Mother’s Day Gift

The Mother’s Day we all know and love was created by Anna Jarvis in 1908. It became an official United States holiday six years later. However, this day of maternal commemoration traces its history back to the ancient Greeks and Romans. Both civilizations would hold festivals in honor of the mother goddesses Rhea and Cybele. The early Christians also had a festival known as “Mothering Sunday,” which fell on the fourth Sunday in Lent.

Today, Mother’s Day is not only a time to celebrate that special lady in your life – your mother – it is also one of the biggest holidays for consumer spending.  For many, this means presenting their mothers with gifts, such as flowers and, of course, chocolate!
