Mothers Day or Mothering Sunday?

Daffodils at Well House ManorFor Americans living in the UK, there's a need to think ahead ... for Mothering Sunday in the UK is celebrated in March (so cards on sale from mid January!) and in the USA, Mother's Day is in early May. You'll get some very odd looks if you walk into a card shop just after Easter here in England and ask for a Mother's Day card ... and you'll need to be very lucky to find one accessible in the "try and sell it next year" draw.

Adding dates to our diary (here and here), I came across a page on a site that I've often found before - Woodlands Junior School in Kent - explaining the UK's mothering Sunday and who it's the middle Sunday of Lent (See here) whereas the USA version isn't based on the date or Easter, which is a study in itself!

The UK / European "Mothering Sunday" dates until 2016 are listed at present here and "Mother's Day" around the world - from Greece on 2nd Feb to 22nd Dec in Indonesia - here
