What is Mothers Day
Mother’s Day is a celebration of all maternal figures, whether that be mothers, grandmothers or others. Each year, people come together to show appreciation towards the motherly figure in their lives by gifting chocolate, cards and flowers.
Mother’s Day, which is also known as Mothering Sunday, usually falls in March in the UK but the date is not always the same. The UK celebration falls on the fourth Sunday during the period of Lent, when people give up bad habits or certain foods in the days leading up to Easter.
