When I was a child ( centuries ago! ) there wasn't any such thing as Mothering Sunday but I still regarded my Mother as invincible and a woman of faith and strength, humour and love.
Someone looking to make a fortune surely invented Mother's Day? and Father's Day?

Glad you brought this topic up JoAnn. I have a hard time remembering mothers day in the UK even though my husband and his family are all from England. I am just so used to the American mothers day. My husband has no idea when the UK mothers day is, so I guess I'm on top of things this time thanks to you.

Not in our neck of the woods they're not!

Shops, florists, radio, newspapers, restaurants , garden centres etc. etc all been advertising for weeks now!

As are the Easter products which appeared just about the week after Christmas Hot Cross buns can now be bought at any time of the year.
