When is mother’s day? Mother’s day in United Kingdom, will celebrate in the Sunday 26 March. The date changes every year because it is linked to the Christian calendar. Mothering Sunday – as it is traditionally known – is celebrated on the fourth Sunday of Lent, which Mother’s Day was originally a day for Christians to visit their ‘mother church’ during the holy month of Lent. Workers would be given the day off to return home and worship with their loved ones.
Young domestic servants would pick wild flowers on their way home to place in the church or to give to their mothers. In modern times, Mother’s Day has become an occasion for children to show their love and affection for their mums, while the religious connotations have been lost.
