When is Mother’s Day in UK?
Who can keep up with the constantly changing date to celebrate our mums each year! Unfortunately unlike other special days of the year, like Valentine’s Day, Mother’s Day doesn’t have a dedicated set date to celebrate each year and many countries also celebrate on different days.
People around the UK take this day to appreciate the role of mothers in the society, not just mums but also grandmothers, step-mums and mother-in-laws. The usual celebrations of Mother’s Day involve taking time to visit mum at home, or meet her in town for an afternoon tea or a pampering session at a spa. Mother’s Day cards and flowers are the most popular gifts for this day, along with toiletries and little treats for mum. Sometimes it is not a physical gift, but the gift of time. Taking your mum to a special place, for a weekend away or just spending some quality time together will certainly make her feel special.
Kids in schools prepare special handmade Mother’s Day cards and daughters and sons all over the country are hunting down the prettiest bouquet for their mum.
