Celebrating Diversity – March 22

Mothering Sunday (UK) – Mothering Sunday is the celebration of motherhood in the UK, and takes place on the fourth Sunday of Lent. Traditionally children bring gifts of flowers and chocolates to their mothers.  Breakfast in bed is also an expectation, as is a relaxing, carefree day.  It originated with the Victorian practice of allowing servants to return home to visit their mothers on this day.
