When Is Mother's Day?

  • Mothering Sunday in the UK is on the 11th March 2018
  • Mother's day in the US is on the 13th May 2018

If you are wondering why they are not on the same day it's because they actually originated from different celebrations.

Mothering Sunday falls on the fourth Sunday in Lent and is a Christian holiday that originated in the 16th Century when people were given the day off to visit their families and return to their Mother church.

Mother's Day falls on the second Sunday in May and originated in America, it was made an official holiday in 1914.

In 1908 Anna Jarvis held a memorial service for her mother and successfully campaigned to make the day an official holiday to celebrate and honor Motherhood.

Many other countries also celebrate Mother's day often combining the celebration with another that is already an official holiday.
