England was the first country in the world to dedicate a day for mothers and it was first celebrated as early as 1600s. They called this day for mothers as 'Mothering Sunday'. The festival has its roots in the practice wherein poor people in England send their little children to work as domestic servants or apprentice with the rich. At that time it was considered important by the people that these children, staying away from their families be allowed to visit their homes once in a year. The time decided for the annual visit to home was middle Sunday of Lent (a preiod from Ash Wednesday to Easter). In England mother’s day was more commonly called Mothering Sunday as children visited their 'Mother Church' or the church of their home. After paying a visit to church, children met their mothers and gave them gifts of flowers and the girls would bake special cakes which they ate with a cup of tea.

Mothering Sunday stopped with the advent of Industrial Revolution in England when the working conditions and life styles changed. Over the period of time one Sunday - 4th Sunday in Lent (3 weeks before Easter) was reserved in the honor of mothers. Currently mothering Sunday has become mother’s day which is the term used in the US.
