Why do we celebrate Mother's Day?
Mother's Day always falls on the fourth Sunday during the Christian period of fasting, Lent, which takes place just after Pancake Day. Mother’s Day is a special occasion celebrated annually to honour and appreciate mothers, motherly figures and motherhood worldwide. This day holds great significance as it provides an opportunity for people to express gratitude and respect towards their mothers for their unwavering love and sacrifice. Mothers are considered the backbone of society, and this day serves as a reminder of their importance in shaping the lives of their children and families.

From their emotional support to the nurturing care they provide, mothers play a critical role in our lives. This day aims to acknowledge their hard work and dedication by offering them gifts and affection. It is also an opportunity to reflect on the sacrifices made by mothers across the world and the challenges they often face in raising their children.
Moreover, Mother’s Day celebrates the bond between mothers and their children, encouraging people to strengthen relationships with their mothers and appreciate their presence in their lives. By recognising the importance of mothers, this day helps foster healthier relationships and stronger family ties.
