Mother's Day or Mothering Sunday? Which is correct?
The day can be traced back to Greek and Roman times. The Greeks honoured Rhea the wife of Cronus. The Romans held the spring festival Hilaria which was dedicated to Cybele.
Early Christians honoured the Virgin Mary on the fourth day of Lent. After the prayer service to the Virgin Mary, children would then present gifts and flowers to their own mums. The event was opened out to include all mums in the UK in the 1600s.
Constance Penswick-Smith, a vicar's daughter, launched the Mothering Sunday Movement in 1914. In 1921 she wrote a book asking for the traditions of Mothering Sunday to be revived. There is a memorial to the revival in Coddington Church, Nottinghamshire.
For me Mothering Sunday is usually a busy day. It normally starts with cooking lunch for my mother-in-law and then I meet up with my sisters to have tea with my mother. If my mother and mother-in-law are like yours, they always love photos of their family and especially their grandchildren. Why not give them the special gift of beautiful portraits this year?
If you would like to purchase vouchers for a present for your mother, or would like your own portrait session to give that gift of love, then please phone on 07927 515996.
