Celebrate Mothers Day with Pimpernel
It can be hard to show your mum how much she means – what should you give as a gift? What’s the best way to celebrate? It can be a difficult task to think of something new and exciting every year. To relieve the pressure this Mother’s Day, we have collated our top list of must‐have gift and special ways to celebrate with Mum. But first, to get you into the Mother’s Day spirit, let’s discover where the special day of celebration began!
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!
