Don’t worry… there is still plenty of time to get some flowers for Mother’s Day March 14th 2021.
In the UK, Mother’s Day takes place on the fourth Sunday of Lent, meaning the date changes each year depending on when Easter Sunday falls.
The dates are all connected to the lunar calendar, which has around 354 days in a full year compared to 365 days in the solar calendar.
Why do we celebrate Mother’s Day?
In recent years, Mother’s Day has become another name for Mothering Sunday but the two have different origins borne from the US and UK respectively.
Mothering Sunday was traditionally a day when Christians were encouraged to visit their mother church – the main church or cathedral in a family’s area.
It was originally an opportunity to show thanks to the Virgin Mary in church and reunite family members who had been working away.
Over the years the day has maintained that aspect of families reuniting and has in recent times seen mothers showered in love and appreciation. March 25th (or the nearest Sunday) is nine months before December 25th (you work it out…) It was traditionally a day off for servants, who could use it to return home and visit their mothers, since they wouldn’t get to see them during the rest of the year, on average.
