A Polish proverb says, “The greatest love is a mother’s; Then comes a dog’s, then comes a sweetheart’s.
Ahhh mother’s love, her presence in our life, her support, there is nothing that can be compared with the mother’s affection. A mother is an irreplaceable gift from God to everyone in the world. In fact, we owe our lives to her, and without her suffering and labour, we wouldn’t have been where we are now.
This is the exact reason why the entire world commemorates a day by the name of ‘Mother’s Day’ to honour the superhero, superhuman, superwomen of our lives who raised us like a prince or a princess. This day is to pay tribute to mothers for all the sacrifices they had to make for their children and for their children’s children.
History of mother’s day
The history of celebrating mother’s day dates back to the ancient times where Greeks and Romans used to celebrate this special occasion according to their customs and traditions. However, in its modern form, the day originated in the United States in 1905. This was the year when Reeves Jarvis, mother of Anna Jarvis died. And since then we are honouring our mothers, thanks to the untiring efforts of Anna and her idea of conceiving a day to glorify the sacrifices of mothers towards their children.
In 1908, Anna organized the first mother’s day at Methodist church in Grafton, her home town, West Virginia. Anna strived hard for years to get this day recognized as an official holiday and after a few years, this special day was celebrated in several states around the US. It was the year 1914, 8th of May, when President Woodrow Wilson declared the day as an official holiday to be celebrated on second Sunday of May, every year.
Going by this Logic, people will celebrate mother’s day 2020 on the 10th of May, however, people in the UK are going to do the same on the 22nd of March.
Why mother’s day in the UK is different from the US?
Mother’s day in the UK is always different from the US and the rest of the world due to a religious reason. It is held on the fourth Sunday of Lent as on this day the Christians used to visit their mother church. This is the reason why people in the UK also call it the ‘mothering Sunday’. Some countries around the world hold their special day for mothers on International Women’s Day.
Do people in the UK observe a holiday?
Mother’s day commonly known in the UK as Mothering Sunday is not a public holiday. Offices and educational institutes are already closed on Sundays and those businesses that are open follow their specific routine hours.
How people celebrate it in the UK?
In the UK, our Mothering Sunday is not only dedicated to our biological mothers but to all the motherly figures like our grandmothers, aunts, mothers in law and stepmothers. A large majority of people visit their mothers to pay homage to them. This meeting involves special cards, presents and a treat lunch, brunch or dinner at their favourite places.
People who are unable to meet their mothers, send them cards, flowers and other gifts as this is a requisite thing associated with mother’s day. The gifts presented to mothers include cakes, flowers, chocolates, jewellery and clothes etc.
While in schools, the teachers help their students make special handmade cards or gifts for their mothers. While in bakeries and superstores, people can easily find decorated cakes and gifts. A lot of people who don’t present their mothers with physical gifts treat them with their favourite foods, take them on an excursion somewhere or book for them special beauty services at UK’s leading salons or parlours.
If you are short of ideas on how to celebrate this special day and what gift could make your mother happy, I would suggest you book an appointment at one of the top beautician or beauty service provider for your mother. I am certain that she would love this pleasant gift whether you keep it secret till the last minute or tell her in advance.
It isn’t a surprise to know that almost all beauty service providers around the UK are providing grooming services, especially laser hair removal, at lowered prices. However, you need to be sensible here as a cut in prices is not all you are looking for. You want an all-round package that gives you quality, service provided by a highly qualified professional, affordability and best results that satisfy you.
