Did you know that England was the first country in the world to dedicate a day for mothers circa the 1600s? The day was originally named 'Mothering Sunday' and was introduced to allow the domestic servants and apprentices employed by the rich to visit their homes and families once a year. The 4th Sunday in Lent (3 weeks before Easter) was chosen for this special day which is now more commonly known as Mother’s Day. Traditional gifts in the past would have been hand-picked flowers or home-baked cakes. However, the modern son or daughter is often too busy or too far away, so online shopping with mail order gifts has become the quick and simple way to show Mum how much you love and appreciate her.
