Mothering Sunday falls on the 30th of March this year. In many countries Mother’s Day falls on the same day every year, for example in America it is always on the second Sunday in May. In the UK however, and somewhat confusingly, the date changes every year.
This is because in the UK we celebrate Mother’s Day on the fourth Sunday of Lent. Lent is a Christian Festival that always begins on Ash Wednesday which itself is always six and a half weeks before Easter Sunday. However the date of Easter Sunday can vary considerably and can fall on any date from 22nd of March to the 25th of April.
Why then does Easter Sunday move around? The date of Easter is determined by the lunar calendar. Easter Sunday is always on the first Sunday after the first full Moon after the 21st of March. So next time you miss Mother’s Day you can blame the moon!
We will be delivering Mother’s Day flowers all weekend, including Sunday for a small, additional charge. All of our designs will be available for local delivery and we’ve also added the following gorgeous new range of Mother’s Day flowers.
To avoid disappointment we recommend ordering early as we are always very busy. You can order on-line, visit the shop or call us and we will be happy to take your order. Don’t forget, as members of Interflora we can also arrange delivery of your flowers throughout the UK and Ireland.
