Mothering Sunday

Yesterday was Mum's Day! It has the same feel as Mother's Day in the States. Although it's history comes from children (around the age of 13) returning home to their mothers after being away at work in elaborate homes/estates. They wouldn't have been able to travel by foot during the winter months, so when the warmer weather of March came around it was their first visit home since October. Parish churches traditionally went to their Mother Church on this Sunday.
