Mothering Sunday Origins..
Need help remembering when the big day falls? It always takes place on the fourth Sunday in the festival of Lent, exactly three weeks before Easter Sunday.
Technically, (in the UK at least) the celebration is Mothering Sunday and not Mother’s Day. Initially, the “mothering” aspect of the occasion had no connection to mothers in the way that it’s celebrated today.
The origins lie in the Middle Ages, when children who had left their families to work in domestic service were allowed to go to their home, or “mother” referring to church.
Further down the line, the date took on an extra celebratory aspect. It became a traditional occasion for the fasting rules of Lent to be relaxed, allowing a long-awaited feast.
How it transformed
The migration from church-related occasion to mum-honouring mega-holiday was thanks to… You guessed it…America!
The American festival of Mother’s Day, which is held later in the year has no religious links. It was created in 1907 by Anna Jarvis. She held a memorial for her peace activist mother who treated wounded soldiers in the American Civil War.
Jarvis campaigned for a day to honour the role played by mothers following her own mum’s death, and the idea gained such traction that by 1911 all US states observed the holiday.
In 1914, it had become so popular that President Woodrow Wilson declared Mother’s Day a national holiday, stating
“A public expression of love and reverence for the mothers of our country”.
Mum’s hilarious post about what women really want for Mother’s Day goes viral

Whatever you do for the special lady in your life, whether she is your Mum, Aunt, Nan or just somebody who means the world to you, enjoy time together and share the love.
