What is Mothering Sunday?

Mothering Sunday is a Christian celebration which falls on the 4th Sunday in Lent exactly 3 weeks before Easter Sunday and traditionally was the day when parishioners would visit their 'mother' church. The day was celebrated by Christians in the UK, Ireland and other countries where the Roman Catholic Church, Church of England and Anglican parishes were active including Australia and Canada.

More recently it has become the day for honouring the mothers of children with the giving of presents. It is commonly called Mother's Day although the name properly belongs to the American secular holiday which is quite distinct from the original Mothering Sunday.

In Australia Mother's Day is always celebrated on the 2nd Sunday in May with the most common gift being flowers, traditionally including pink ChrysantheMUMS.
