Gee, I've never heard of Mothering Sunday. Wikipedia says it's
    a holiday celebrated by Catholic and Protestant Christians in some parts of Europe. It falls on the fourth Sunday in Lent, exactly three weeks before Easter Day. Once observed as a day on which people would visit their "mother" church, it has also become an occasion for honouring the mothers of children and giving them presents. It is increasingly being called Mother's Day, although that has always been a secular event quite different from the original Mothering Sunday. In the UK and Ireland, Mothering Sunday is celebrated in the same way as Mother's Day is celebrated elsewhere.

I've always known the Fourth Sunday of Lent as Laetare Sunday, the halfway point in Lent where priests wear rose-colored vestments and the kids know they're halfway through their annual agony of giving up candy....

Mothering Sunday is widely celebrated in UK! It used to be when children (especially young girls working 'in service' in large houses) would take gifts, especially flowers to their mothers.
We have a care home gig that day and are compiling a set list!

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mother%27s_Day is also highly informative.

Pretty sure there was a long thread on this before, except as "Mother's Day". This year in the UK it's Sunday 11th March: I believe it's later in the year in the US and maybe other countries.

Mothering Sunday is on a suite of songs on the album Sedgefield Fair: More?-?or?-?less traditional songs from England & Scotland by Jane Peppler (piano by Jacqueline Schwab) mentioned as "Learned from the Oxford Book of Carols" with these lyrics:

It is the day of all the year, of all the year the one day
That I shall see my mother dear and bring her cheer a mothering on Sunday

So I'll put on my Sunday coat and in my hat a feather
And get the lines I writ by note with many a note that I've a-strung together

And now to fetch my wheaten cake, to fetch it from the baker
He promised me for mother's sake, the best he'd bake for me to fetch and take her

My sister Jane is waiting maid along with Squire's lady
And year by year her part she's played, and home she's stayed to get the dinner ready

For mother comes to church, you see, of all the year it's the day
"The one," she'll say, "that's made for me!" And so it be - it's every mother's free day

The boys will all come home from town, not one will miss that one day
And every maid will bustle down to show her gown, a-mothering on Sunday

It is the day of all the year, of all the year the one day
And here come I, my mother dear, to bring you cheer a-mothering on Sunday


That's where I heard about Mothering Sunday, which was never going to be a holiday for me, having spent most of my life motherless.

Joanne in Cleveland

adding back https:// after a href=" should put it right]

Thanks Freddy: I think that was more reflecting the difficulty of copying a link while on iPad, rather than the blickifier!
