Stuck For Mother’s Day Gift Ideas? Look No Further!!
Mother’s Day has changed through the years, starting out as an opportunity for our middle ages ancestors to return to their ‘mother church’ on the 4th Sunday in Lent for a service. Later this became a day off for domestic servants to visit their mother church, usually with their mothers and wider family. For many families it was a rare occasion for them to be together given their working commitments, especially those in service. It was traditional for the children to pick flowers on their way home to give to the church or their mothers.
The previous two years have made celebrating with our mums quite a challenge and Covid is still a serious consideration for many when planning their celebrations. Whether you are able to safely face to face or are celebrating at a distance, our mums collectively deserve some TLC. This year, Mother’s Day falls on the 27th March and it is time to think about how you can let them know just how much you love them!
