Once again I am really pleased to be able to post another article by Dr Jeffrey Lant, CEO Worldprofit.
Although we in the UK had Mother’s day a few weeks ago on 3 April, Dr Lant’s article today celebrates this wonderful day by looking into the history of where the actual day came from in the US.
In the United Kingdom, Mothering Sunday as it is more commonly known, is believed to have originated in the 16th century, when most mothers would be reunited with their children on Laetere Sunday, a day when young apprentices and young women in servitude were released by their masters for the weekend. This day always fell on the fourth Sunday of Lent , which in 2011 was 3 April.
By 1935 Mothering Sunday was less celebrated in Europe, despite efforts to revive the festival in the 1910s–1920s by Constance Penswick-Smith. It was eventually reinstated when American soldiers brought Mother’s Day celebrations to the UK, and it was merged with the religious festival of Mothering Sunday to become Mother’s Day in the UK.
Although the Americans are late to the party by some 5 weeks, Dr Lant’s article is very interesting to understand the different dates and how they came about. You can read the complete artcle here: Articles / Family / Mother’s day
