"Mothers Day" or "Mother's Day" or "Mothers' Day"? Where is the Apostrophe?

mother's day apostrophe and video collectionA trivia I got fron Wikipedia: Mothers' Day, Mothers Day or Mother's Day? Where the apostrophe should be? Or is there an apostrophe at all? Below, it is answered by Wikipedia:
In 1912, Anna Jarvis trademarked the phrases "second Sunday in May" and "Mother's Day", and created the Mother's Day International Association."She was specific about the location of the apostrophe; it was to be a singular possessive, for each family to honour their mother, not a plural possessive commemorating all mothers in the world."This is also the spelling used by U.S. President Woodrow Wilson in the law making official the holiday in the U.S., by the U.S. Congress on bills,and by other U.S. presidents on their declarations.Common usage in English language also dictates that the ostensibly singular possessive "Mother's Day" is the preferred spelling
. Below is a collection of fun Mother's Day videos from Youtube... Have fun watching, mothers and the rest of the world...
