What is Mother’s Day
Mothering Sunday, or Mother’s Day as it’s become known, is a celebration of mums. It’s a chance for mums to be pampered and generally spoilt rotten on a day other than their birthday. And why not?
When is Mother’s Day
In the UK Mother’s Day is celebrated on the fourth day of Lent, exactly three weeks before Easter Sunday and usually falls in the second half of March or early April.
Why is Mother’s Day celebrated on different dates around the world?
In other parts of the world the day is celebrated on different dates and, like many modern “holidays”, follows the USA (even if it has nothing to do with that country’s history and culture – take a look at Black Friday for instance!).
In the USA the celebration is held on the second Sunday in May, and thus similarly in many other countries.
