Mothers day can be traced back to the 1600s. On the fourth Sunday of Lent In England ‘Mothering Sunday’ was celebrated to honour the mothers of England. ‘Mothering Sunday’ was also known as ‘Refreshment Sunday’ and ‘Mid-Lent Sunday’
Christians often called it ‘Refreshment Sunday’ due to the fasting rules for Lent being relaxed because of the ‘feeding of the five thousand’ story in the Bible.

As Christianity spread throughout Europe the celebration changed to honour the ‘Mother Church’ – the spiritual power that gave them life and protected them from harm. Churchgoers who lived in villages made a point of going not to their local church ( their Daughter Church ) but to the nearest big church (the Mother Church where they were Christened) which they referred to as going “a Mothering “.

Over time, the church festival blended with the Mothering Sunday celebration. By the 19th Century people began honouring their mothers as well as the Church. During this time many of England’s poor worked as servants for the wealthy. Most servants would live at the houses of their employers but on Mothering Sunday the servants would have the day off and were encouraged to return home and spend the day with their mothers.

A special cake, called the Mothering Cake, was often given by the grown up children as a gift.

Younger children often picked flowers on their way home from work ‘in service’ to give to their Mothers. Sometimes workers were allowed to take home eggs to their Mother as a gift.

In1914, Anna M Jarvis campaigned for the first ‘official’ national Mother‚??s Day in the US. & persuaded her mother’s church to celebrate Mothers Day on 2nd Sunday in May which was the anniversary of her mother’s death. The campaign spread from there on. The UK seems to have adopted the name Mother’s Day to replace Mothering Sunday.
