If you're in the UK, the date you need to remember is Sunday 26th March 2017.
Unlike many other traditional celebrations like Valentine's Day and Christmas Day, Mother's Day doesn't take place on the same date every year, and even more confusingly, it happens on different dates in different countries all over the world.Why is Mothering Sunday on a Different Date Each Year?
Here in the UK it's always celebrated exactly 3 weeks before Easter, which is the fourth Sunday of Lent, and is usually in March or early April.
If you want to get ahead for next year, it will be Sunday 11th March 2018.Why do we celebrate Mothering Sunday?
Traditionally Mothering Sunday was a day for Christians to visit their local or "mother" church, and servants would be granted a day off to return home and celebrate with their families. Whilst we still observe the traditional timing of Mothering Sunday, the religious meaning of the feast now takes a backseat to the modern celebrations of giving cards, gifts and best of all spending time with our mums making them feel special.Unique gifts for Mum
'Everything I am you helped me to be'
Back in the Mothering Sunday days, it was traditional to give the gift of a homemade Simnel cake or some fresh picked flowers. Today Mother's Day is the biggest day of the year for florists (even bigger than Valentine's Day!) with billions of beautiful blooms snapped up from florists and supermarkets up and down the country.
