Mother’s Day or mothering Sunday as it’s more formally called is a day to celebrate the role that mothers have and take on. This year in 2021 it lies on Sunday, the 14th of March in the UK and in the USA it lies on Sunday, the 9th of May.
Mothers Day in the UK
The UK Mother’s Day came into existence during the Middle Ages as families drifted apart due to sons and daughters moving for work and their own families. (Not dissimilar to now a days but with our transport its a lot easier to pop to see the parents). So on the fourth Sunday of the Christian festival of Lent they used to go back and see their families in particular their mother as she is such a central figure of a family this was the start of the UK mothering Sunday as we know it.
Mothers Day in the USA
As for the USA it has a different story it started with a woman called Anna Jarvis who held a small memorial service for her mother on the 12th of May 1907. That concept followed through other American States and before too long most places in America were observing the same day honouring mothers. In 1914 the US President made it a national holiday. Mother’s Day in the USA it’s always celebrated on the second Sunday of May.
