So why is Mother’s Day on a different day in the UK?
Updated: Feb 27, 2020
UK Mother’s Day this year is on Sunday 22nd March, so time to start thinking about how to mark the occasion! But have you ever wondered why, confusingly, the date moves from year to year and is out of sync with other countries?
In the USA, Mother’s Day is always on the second Sunday in May - as decreed by President Woodrow Wilson in 1914 – and many other countries have since followed suit.
Here in the UK, however, Mother’s Day is based on the Christian festival of Mothering Sunday. Revived during the First World War, it takes place exactly 3 weeks before Easter Sunday, hence the difference.
So now for the other important question: What to do? Lunch, flowers, silk scarf, spa day? Chocolate?
Or how about a lovely LVL lash lift or a set of eyelash extensions? After a relaxing hour or two at Lara Lashes your lovely Mum will emerge looking even lovelier and feeling gloriously more glamorous.
Show her the love and book her in for the best eyelash extensions in south west London. It’s only 3 and a half weeks away so get ahead of the game and get in touch with us early to find out about all the different lash options available at our Battersea salon and get an appointment in the diary for the time that works best.
You could also try dropping a few hints to your children (husband?!) on your own behalf – every mother needs some serious pampering now and then and you never know, it may just work! Or better still make a booking for yourself and your mother and get 15% off each appointment under our Recommend a Friend scheme. …
A word to the wise though – buy chocolate anyway. Always a winner! 😊
