Mothering Sunday otherwise known as "Mothers Day", is a Christian festival.
The festival’s roots are derived from the seventeenth century, when England celebrated a day called "Mothering Sunday", celebrated on the fourth Sunday of Lent (also known as Mid-Lent Sunday).
Mothering Sunday honoured the mothers of England. As Christianity spread throughout Europe the celebration changed to honour the "Mother Church", the spiritual power that gave them life and protected them from harm. Over time the church festival evolved linked with Mothering Sunday celebrations. People began honouring their mothers as well as the church. During this time many of England's poor worked as servants for the wealthy. Traditionally, Mothering Sunday was a day when children, mainly daughters, who had gone to work as domestic servants were given a day off to visit their mother and family.
In other cultures some mothers are revered as goddesses, referred to as Mother Earth or Earth Mothers; a personification of nature, motherhood, fertility, creation, destruction or those who embody the bounty of the Earth.
