Taking place on the fourth Sunday of every Lent, the European tradition of Mother’s Day – officially known among religious groups as Mothering Sunday – is the official time of year to give mums a day off from doing the multitude of daily jobs they’re usually tasked with. Kids, partners and even friends celebrate the day by buying gifts for mums, or simply picking up the slack a bit more around the house. Don’t forget to buy a card, alongside a few other titbits; while chocolates and flowers are the standard go-to, handmade presents always go down a treat, and show even more thoughtfulness.
Don’t fall for a quick Google search if you need to double-check this date! Mother’s Day in the USA takes place on the second Sunday in May instead.
