Whilst we are probably more used to Mother’s Day in March, it actually falls quite late this year in the UK, being on Sunday 3rd April, so there is still plenty of time to plan a nice surprise for your Mum.
Although it’s often thought to be a very modern celebration, folklore shows that a day known as ‘Mothering Sunday’ was celebrated in England as far back as the mid 17th Century. It was always celebrated on the fourth Sunday in Lent and was typically a time when those who lived and worked away from their parents would go back to visit their family, usually taking some sort of gift or cake with them.
By the 20th Century, a new tradition had emerged that saw children giving flowers and cake to their mothers on Mothering Sunday and the modern day celebration was firmly established on the calendar when the USA introduced ‘Mother’s Day’ after the Second World War (although in America, Mother’s Day is celebrated on the second Sunday in May).
If you are looking for somewhere to take your Mum out for a nice meal, here are some of our hot picks for Mother’s Day restaurant offers around the UK.
