When is Mothers Day in the UK in 2023?

This year, the UK will celebrate Mother’s Day on Sunday, March 19th. 

Mother’s Day in the UK is always celebrated on the fourth Sunday of Lent. However, this date changes yearly depending on when Easter falls, which also changes yearly depending on the first full moon of Spring.

Nigeria, the UK and Ireland all celebrate Mother’s Day on the same day, whilst some countries base the date on seasons. Meanwhile, other countries, such as America, celebrate Mother’s Day on the second Sunday in May, which this year is May 14th. 

The history of Mother’s Day

Mother’s Day celebrations trace back to the ancient Greeks and Romans, who held festivals in honour of goddesses. However, Mother’s Day as we know it is mostly linked to the early Christian festival known as “Mothering Sunday”, which saw church members return to their town’s main church, also known as their “mother church”, for a special service. 

Over time, Mother’s Day and the traditions that go with it have become more secular, seeing children celebrate their mothers with cards, flowers, and chocolate. The celebrations have also extended to include all maternal figures, including those like a mum, grandmothers, aunties, and sisters.
