Mother's Day

In the UK and Ireland, Mother's Day falls on the fourth Sunday of Lent, three weeks before Easter Sunday. It's origins are believed to have come from the 16th Century Christian ritual of making an annual visit to the church of your Mother, thereby reuniting Mothers with their children on this day.
