History of Mother’s Day UK

So let’s start from the very beginning and find out when Mother’s Day was founded. It’s actually embedded deep into our history, so much so that it dates all the way back to Ancient times. More specifically Ancient Greece and the Romans, who held festivals for Mother Goddesses, Rhea and Cybele. Since the 16th century, Mother’s Day has fallen on the fourth Sunday in lent, three weeks before Easter Sunday, leading it to become a significant tradition across the UK. When it first started, Mother’s Day was originally a religious day to honour Mother Mary (Virgin Mary), and Christians would return to their mother church for a special service to honour the day. Today, Mother’s Day has shifted to a more widely celebrated event that is secular and often acknowledged with chocolate, flowers and thoughtful gifts!
