Thinking about how to spoil your Mum on Mother’s Day….
Each year on the fourth Sunday of Lent, countries around the world celebrate Mothering Sunday, which typically involves lavishing Mums with gifts and attention – celebrating the women who have nurtured us throughout our lives. It’s a very special and celebratory day!
The history behind Mother’s Day…
Traditionally Mother’s Day was actually a celebration of the church, in the 16th century people would make a journey to their ‘mother’ church (which might have been their home church, nearest cathedral or a nearby major parish church) and there would be a dedicated service to symbolize the coming together of families.
Later, Mothering Sunday became more of a family focused occasion – tradition was to allow those working in the fields on wealthy farms and estates in England to have the day off on the fourth Sunday of Lent to visit their mothers. Often a traditional and super-sweet Simnel Cake would be made as a part of the celebration, a delicious fruit cake with a marzipan layer and topped with eggs, a great partner to a good cup of English Breakfast tea!
Today Mother’s Day focuses more on showing appreciation and normally families will come together to have lunch, a day out or maybe come together for Afternoon Tea – ultimately, it’s all about making an effort to make your mom or your beloved wife feel special and to celebrate your bond.
