Your Guide to Mother’s Day

When is Mother’s Day 2015?

Mother’s Day this year falls on Sunday 15 March 2015 . So you’ve still got plenty of time to get your card and gift ideas in order.

Why does the date change every year?

There is no fixed date for Mother’s Day… and it does not necessarily have to fall in the month of March.

Each year, the date for Mother’s Day is set by the Church, as it is scheduled to fall on the fourth Sunday of Lent.

This means that Mother’s Day can be no earlier than 1 March, and no later than 4 April.

What is the story behind Mother’s Day?

In the UK, it is believed that the tradition of Mothering Sunday evolved from a 16th century religious practice of visiting your “mother church” once a year.

Most people would regularly attend their nearest parish, known as the “daughter church”. It was considered vital that churchgoers make an annual visit to the main parish in their area, and this generally happened in the middle of Lent.

In those days, children as young as 10 were known to leave home for work, but they would be given the day off in order to return to their mother church, so the event usually became a family reunion.
