The History of Mothering Sunday

Like many traditions, Mother's Day started as a religious practice in the UK. During the 16th century, people in the UK attended an exceptional service at their "mother church", or the chapel they were baptised on the fourth Sunday in Lent. This unique gathering had the power to reunite entire families. It became a true family-honoured tradition.

On this day, children who worked as apprentices away from home had a day off to join their relatives and, especially, meet their mother. To Celebrate Mother’s Day, on their way back home, children would pick wildflowers to place them in the church or give them to their mothers. This custom evolved into the tradition of delivering flowers to mothers. It shouldn't come as a surprise, then, that Mother’s Day roses are a great gift.

Origins

It was officially established in the US in 1908 by Lady Anna Jarvis of West Virgina. She held a memorial to honour her late Mother and pushed hard for an official holiday to celebrate Mother's Day worldwide.

In 1914l after a lot of hard work and promotion, US President Woodrow Wilson finally made a proclamation. He established the second Sunday of Mat as the official US date for the observance of a national day to celebrate mothers.

Shortly after the holiday became famous, and people celebrate it. People from the UK and Ireland unified this celebration, marking the two occurrences on the same day.
