When is Mother’s Day 2022?
Mother’s Day is just around the corner on 27th March 2022. Due to it’s moving around on the calendar each year, it’s one of those days that suddenly creeps up on you… but what is it all about?
Mothering Sunday originated in the Middle Ages, when children who had left their families to work in domestic service were allowed to go to their home, or visit their mother church.
The modern interpretation of Mothering Sunday has it’s roots in America as far back as 1907. The daughter of a peace activist, Anna Jarvis, who treated wounded soldiers in the American Civil War, campaigned for a day to honour the role played by all mothers.
In the UK, we follow the religious calendar, whereby Mothering Sunday falls on the fourth Sunday of Lent which also marks three weeks before Easter Sunday. This is not the case in many other countries around the world, who follow America’s lead in celebrating the holiday on the second Sunday in May.
For most, Mother’s Day, is now the opportunity for children to give presents, flowers, and home-made cards to their mothers.
