Mother's Day 2019
Mother's Day falls on Sunday, March 31.
Mothering Sunday is a Christian celebration, which we Brits celebrate exactly three weeks before Easter Sunday, which is also late this year.
It has now evolved into a day of appreciation for all the maternal women in our lives.
Traditionally gifts such as flowers and chocolates are given as special thanks for all that mums do but you can be more imaginative than that.
What are the origins of Mother's Day?
Mothering Sunday is a Christian celebration that has now become a worldwide event where we show mums how much we appreciate them.
More than 30% of Brits say their mum is the most inspirational person in their life. Mother's Day is traditionally a celebration to observe and celebrate mums, grandmothers and step-mums with flowers, breakfast in bed, gifts and cards.
As previously mentioned, Mother's Day can find its origins back in the ancient Greek times but we celebrate it today in a way which the Americans started in the early 20th Century.
More recent origins of Mothering Sunday date back to the 1600s in England when it was held on the fourth Sunday of Lent. It was originally a day for Christians to visit their 'mother church'.
