There's A Date Coming Up You Don't Want To Forget!
March 05, 2018
Mothering Sunday – as it is traditionally known – is celebrated on the fourth Sunday of Lent, which is three weeks before Easter Sunday. So this year it will be on the 11th.
In the UK, Mother’s Day was originally a day for Christians to visit their ‘mother’ church back home during the holy month of Lent.
Workers would be given the day off to return home and worship with their loved ones and havefamilyreunion.
It is thought that the return to the ‘mother' church led to the tradition of young domestic servants and apprentices being given the day off to visit their mother and family.
In the United States and many destinations around the globe, Mother's Day 2018 is being celebrated on Sunday, May 13.
President Woodrow Wilson established the first US national Mother’s Day in 1914 after a campaign by social activist Anna Jarvis, known as the Mother of Mother’s Day.
Many countries in Europe and across the world have also adopted the US date.
