Every day is a good day for celebrating the importance of motherhood, but the date for really setting aside time for the mums is quickly approaching.
The date in the UK this year is the 14th March.
Mother’s Day, also known as Mothering Sunday in the UK, takes place on the fourth Sunday of Lent. Lent is the period of time preparing for Easter, which takes place at a different time in spring each year depending on the calendar.
Other parts of the world celebrate Mother’s Day at a different date to Mothering Sunday, but in the UK and some other English-speaking regions the two days are synonymous.
The day offers the chance to celebrate motherhood in all its variety and energy. The following are five great ideas for letting mothers know just how important they are!
