Perhaps most bizarrely, but unsurprisingly, Houdini became a proselytizer for the Mother’s Day holiday, which was formally established in 1914. Following tradition, he sent red carnations to all of the living mothers he knew and white carnations for the graves of mothers who had gone. Presumably, his mother’s grave overflowed with the white flower.
The above is a snippet from the following bio that has a lot of interesting information on Houdini and his mother.
Enjoy and don’t forget to wish all the Mom’s you know a Happy Mother’s Day!
