Mother's Day


ln Britain fourth Sunday of Lent was called Mothering Sunday. Centuries ago, people visited their ‘mother' church in their town or village on this day. Later, when young people started to leave home to work, and live farther away, they had a day's holiday once a year to visit their mother and the mother church. They took presents like flowers, cake home to their mothers. Slowly, Mothering Sunday changed to Mother’s Day – a special day for mothers.
