Mother's Day: A Journey Through Time

Mother's Day: A Journey Through Time

Mother's Day in the UK, or Mothering Sunday as it's traditionally known, boasts a history stretching back to the 16th century.

It began when individuals returned to their "mother church"—the main church or cathedral in their area—for a special service. This reunion of families evolved into a day of appreciation for mothers. The fourth Sunday of Lent was chosen for this celebration, a date that changes annually. This year, we celebrate Mother's Day on the 10th of March.


Modern Celebrations


Fast forward to today, and Mothering Sunday has metamorphosed into a more secular holiday known as Mother's Day, celebrated with much fervour across the UK. It's a day when the hustle and bustle of life takes a backseat, allowing families to come together and lavish mums with love, attention, and often, a generous helping of gifts.


It's not just about the gifts, though. Many families mark the occasion with a special meal, whether it's a cosy home-cooked lunch or a fancy outing to a favourite restaurant. After all, nothing says "thank you" quite like a delicious spread of mum's favourite foods, shared with her favourite people.


Who Celebrates?


The beauty of Mother's Day lies in its universal appeal. It's for all the mother figures out there—stepmums, grandmothers, aunts, and even those special women who've been like a mother in someone's life. It's a day of inclusivity, celebrating the diverse forms of motherhood and the immense impact these incredible women have on our lives.


Let's Celebrate!


As we celebrate this special day, we at The Bridging Group would like to extend our warmest wishes to all the mothers and mother figures out there. Your strength, love, and dedication shape the world in ways that words can scarcely capture. You're the heart of families and communities, the unsung heroes of daily life.


We're particularly proud to mention that half of our team are mums—amazing women who not only excel in their professional roles but also bring the essence of motherhood into everything they do. Your remarkable balance of care, resilience, and professionalism inspires us every day.


Dear Mothers,

May your day be filled with the love and joy you so generously give to others.

Happy Mother's Day!
