Mothering Sunday

Happy Mothering Sunday!

A day for children to pay respect to their mothers.  Often by giving a card, or gift.  A day for Mothers to be pampered and with a little luck is able to get some time to relax.

Mothering Sunday is always the middle Sunday in Lent.  It was also known as Pudding pie Sunday, Mid-Lent Sunday or Refreshment Sunday.  This was a day in lent when the fasting rules were relaxed.   Mothering Sunday is also sometimes known as Simnel Sunday because of the tradition of baking Simnel cakes.
