Mother's Day, which is widely known as Mothering Sunday in the UK, falls on the fourth Sunday of Lent, which is March 18th this current year. It may have came from from the 16th century religious custom of visiting one's mother church each and every year on Laetere Sunday, which meant a large number of mothers would be reunited with their kids for the day as their kids would often be working away from home and only returned to their mother church or cathedral for this special day. A further theory is that this special event could possibly have been acquired from the Roman Spring festival celebrating Cybele, their Mother Goddess. Then the Christian Church, which usually implemented quite a few pagan calendar celebrations, may have changed it for its own purposes.

Young apprentices and young ladies in service were released by their masters and mistresses that weekend. People who visited their mother church would say they had gone "a mothering." Those in service were solely allowed one day to visit their loved ones each calendar year. It was normally on Mothering Sunday.

For quite a few servants in olden times this may be a considerable quest since their mother could possibly have lived a long way away, indeed another town completely from the Manor where these people were put in to service. Usually the housekeeper or cook would allow the maids to cook a cake to take home for their mother. Quite often a gift of eggs; or flowers from the garden (or hothouse) was permitted.

Latest Jewellery Designs Make Fabulous Gifts

Quite possibly the most preferred cake appeared in later times - as it still is in some families - the simnel cake, a fruit cake. A flat covering of marzipan (sugar almond paste) is placed on top of and ornamented with 11 marzipan balls representing the 12 apostles minus Judas, who betrayed Christ.

The Flowerland bangle or earrings would make the perfect floral gift among the latest jewellery designs. This beautiful collection is prompted by lazy days amongst the rose-beds. Flowerland is bursting with plants and butterflies boasting a 9 carat yellow gold butterfly.

Because the days of service in great houses reduced in the early 20th century Mothering Sunday was less widely celebrated. But during World War Two American troopers introduced the Mother's Day festivities into the UK when it was merged together with the Mothering Sunday traditions. By the 1950s Mother's Day became traditionally used in the whole of the UK and gifts were bought, just like the latest jewellery designs, though perhaps not expensive jewellery in most cases. Various Mothering Sunday customs were revived, which include the custom of consuming cake on that day.

Mothering Sunday can fall at the earliest on 1 March (in years that Easter Day falls on 22 March) and at the latest on 4 April (when Easter Day happens on 25 April). It has also been referred to as Refreshment Sunday, Pudding Pie Sunday (in Surrey, England) or Mid-Lent Sunday. It was actually a day in Lent when the fasting rules were relaxed.

These days it is a day when young boys and girls give presents, flowers, and home-made cards for their mothers. You can do that at any age, obviously. Mums pretty much expect to have the day being marked with gifts and also a lunch out at a restaurant.

There's no need to spend a fortune if you look around, numerous Orkney jewelers offer special promotions if you choose to give a necklace, brooch, earrings, bangle or any of the latest jewellery designs. This would keep the expenses down because you can easily still give comparatively expensive jewellery and yet not spend a fortune.
