When was Mother's Day in 2012 ?
Mother’s Day is a popular occasion celebrated all across the World. Though commemorated with lots of excitement and verve, the day on which the occasion is celebrated in UK differs from that of USA and India. In UK, Mother's Day celebration mostly takes place on the fourth Sunday of the month of Lent unlike in USA where the day is celebrated in the second Sunday of May. As the Lent days are not fixed, the date for UK Mother’s Day changes every year. However, This day celebrates motherhood and maternal bonds by honouring mothers who devote their whole life for the well-being of her child.
The tradition of paying homage to loving mothers by celebrating this special day began much before in England than in USA. As a matter of fact, England is indeed the first nation that dedicated a day for mothers in the early 1600s. In United Kingdom, the day is popularly called ‘Mothering Sunday’. As history goes, the festival has its roots in the age old practice wherein the deprived children in England were sent to work as domestic help in the houses of affluent people or as apprentice. To bridge the pangs of separation, it was considered essential by people to allow the kids visit their parental place once in a year. The time dedicated for annual visit was thus decided to be the middle Sunday of the fasting period of Lent, that lasts from Ash Wednesday to Easter. This significance allows the day to be called as the ‘Refreshment Day’ or ‘Mid-Lent Sunday’ in UK. Though denoted by different names earlier, today, it is simply called Mothers Day. In USA, on the other hand, people celebrate this day by visiting churches, distributing carnations and by going for family dinners.
Although the date of celebration differs among countries like UK, USA, India etc. the significance and fervour remains intact.
