HappyMothersDayMother’s Day is a celebration honoring mothers and motherhood, maternal bonds, and the influence of mothers in society. It is celebrated on various days in many parts of the world, most commonly in March, April or May. It complements Father’s Day, a celebration honoring fathers.

Mother’s Day is an American invention, and it is not directly descended from the many celebrations of mothers and motherhood that have occurred throughout the world over thousands of years, such as the Greek cult to Cybele, the Roman festival of Hilaria, or the Christian Mothering Sunday celebration. Despite this, in some countries Mother’s Day has become synonymous with these older traditions.

This year, Mothering Sunday, which is also referred to as Mother’s Day, is celebrated in the UK on 10 March. The tradition of Mother’s Day in the UK has a religious backdrop and commences on the fourth Sunday in Lent.
