18 March 2012 - Mothering Sunday
Mothering Sunday, sometimes known as Mother’s Day, is held on the fourth Sunday of Lent in the United Kingdom. It is exactly three weeks before Easter Sunday and usually falls in the second half of March or the beginning of April.
Mothering Sunday was originally a time when people returned to the church, in which they were baptized or where they attended services when they were children.
This meant that families were reunited as adults returned to the towns and villages where they grew up.
In time, it became customary for young people who were working as servants in large houses, to be given a holiday on Mothering Sunday. They could use this day to visit their own mother and often took a gift of food or hand-me-down clothing from their employers to her.
Mothering Sunday is now a celebration of motherhood. It is a day to honor mothers and other mother figures, such as grandmothers, stepmothers and mother-in-laws.
