In England, Mother's Day is celebrated on the fourth Sunday of Lent. This date moves every year, as does Easter. This year it falls on Sunday 26th March.
The earliest history of Mothers Day dates back to the ancient annual spring festival the Greeks dedicated to maternal goddesses. Ancient Romans, too, celebrated a spring festival, called Hilaria dedicated to Cybele, a mother goddess.
Early Christians celebrated a Mother's Day of sorts during the festival on the fourth Sunday of Lent in honor of the Virgin Mary, the Mother of Christ. In England the holiday was expanded to include all mothers. It was then called Mothering Sunday.
