When Is Mother's Day 2015?


Mother's Day will fall on Sunday, March 15 this year in the UK, so it's time to start thinking about a treat for your mum - and planting homemade gift ideas in your children's minds.

Originally known as Mothering Sunday, the concept of spending time with your mother on the fourth Sunday of Lent goes back hundreds of years.

The term 'mothering' did not initially refer to mothers, but to the 'mother church' where working people were expected to attend a special service, often with their families, on that Sunday.VIRTUAL-UKArticleAdsSlideshow-84746%
