We generally celebrate mother’s day on a Sunday, also known as ‘mothering Sunday’. Falling on the 4th Sunday on lent.
It is an annual celebration where families up and down the UK pay tribute to the role mums play in their lives, giving thanks for everything they do. Similar celebrations also take place around the world but not necessarily on the same day.
Mothering Sunday is firmly rooted in Christianity and began life as a largely religious celebration before merging into the commercialised celebration as we know it today, taking inspiration from many of the traditions used to mark Mother’s Day in the USA. Its religious origins are believed to date back to Roman times when a festival was held in mid-March to honour Cybele, the mother goddess. After Europe and Britain adopted Christianity, Laetare Sunday – the traditional name for the fourth Sunday of Lent – became the focus to continue mother-themed celebrations in honour of the Virgin Mary and the ‘mother church’.
As time developed, less emphasis was based on the religious aspect of mother’s day, and is now widely celebrated focusing on mother’s and motherhood.
