The Story Behind Mother's Day

Mother’s Day in the UK or Mothering Sunday as it’s also known is on the 4th day of lent, landing any time between the 1st March and the 4th April. In 2020 Mother’s Day falls on Sunday 22st March. Mother’s day (the celebration of one’s mother) was originated in the United States, by a woman named Anna Jarvis. In 1907 she held a private celebration in memory of her own mother. She wanted to continue to honour her own mother by setting aside a day to honour all mothers. She described a mother as ‘the woman who has done more for you than anyone else in the world.’
