Mother's Day

Updated: Apr 7, 2020

26th March is a very special day to recognise mums.

A woman named Anna Jarvis was responsible for making the celebration a public holiday in the 1900's.

We celebrate Mother’s Day on the fourth Sunday of Lent as this is traditionally when Christians would visit their mother at church. Historians believe that on their way to see their mother, children would stop at the roadside and pick flowers as a gift while traditional foods associated with Lent, such as Simnel cake, were eaten.

And you know what?

  • 46% of people in the UK send a Facebook or text message instead of a card!

  • Mother’s Day in the UK has become one of the biggest consumer spending days in the yearly calendar, with retailers seeing an increasing amount of cash spent, particularly online – it has become big business.

  • During the 1600's in the UK it used to be called Mothering Sunday.

  • In nearly all countries and all languages, the word ‘mother’ or ‘mum’ begins with the letter ‘m’.

  • Taking into account all the cooking, cleaning, nursing and childcare (plus a dash of counselling and work as a personal organiser), housewives deserve an annual salary of £159,137.

At Deaf Umbrella we want to take a moment to wish each mum a Happy Mother’s Day and give you some tips to make them as special as they are.

We've even put together Mother's Day gift ideas if you want/need inspiration for that perfect pressie. So don't leave it until the last-minute (this time) and put a smile on your mum’s face this weekend! :)
