Mother's Day 2019 weather forecast

Sun 31 Mar 2019

This year, Mother's Day is on 31 March and always falls on the fourth Sunday of Lent and three weeks before Easter Sunday.

In the UK, the event can be traced back to the church and some historians believe that it evolved from the 16th century Christian practice of visiting one's Mother's church for Laetare Sunday (the fourth Sunday of Lent). Based on this tradition, most mothers were reunited with their children on this day when young apprentices and young women in service were released by their employers for that weekend.

The tradition was still popular at the start of the 19th century but with the Industrial Revolution, traditions changed until it became popular again during the 1950's when the commercial opportunities were realised by UK traders. Some Mothering Sunday traditions were revived, such as the tradition of eating cake on that day, although now Simnel cake is more popular rather than the cakes made at the time.
