Mothering Sunday facts

  • Mothering Sunday falls on the fourth Sunday in Lent, exactly three weeks before Easter
  • Once observed as a day on which people would visit their ‘mother’ church, it has become an occasion for honouring mothers and giving gifts
  • The festival has also been known as Simnel Sunday. Simnel cakes were baked to celebrate the reuniting of families during Lent
  • The name Refreshment Sunday has also been used because there is traditionally a relaxation of vows made for Lent on this day
  • Another sweet treat made for Mothering Sunday were mothering buns. The buns were topped with pink or white icing and multicoloured sprinkles!
