The Story Of Mother’s Day

Across the world, people give candy, flowers and gifts to their mother on Mother’s Day – but where did the holiday get its name?

During the Middle Ages people who had moved away from their original birthplace often visited their home parishes and their mothers on Laetare Sunday, the fourth Sunday of Lent.

Later, in Britain, this custom became Mothering Sunday, where it continued into modern times, although it has largely been replaced by Mother’s Day. Mother’s Day is celebrated on the second Sunday of May in the US.

Whatever the reason for the day, it’s surely one of the best-loved holidays to celebrate your mom. And a great reason to give that special person you love a gift to remember you by!
