    I keep forgetting that you celebrate it on a different day to us. We celebrated it here in the UK on 3rd April. I don't really celebrate it as I am not a Mum and my Mum and Mum-in-law are both no longer with us.

    But for those who do, a very happy Mother's day.

    As Margaret says we celebrate on a different day. Also our celebration was actually more to do with the church than ones actual mother, but it became influenced by the commercial aspects, probably led by America.

    Interesting to read the accounts of another countries customs and early practices for this particular day. I understand that the UK refers to this as "mothering day" as pointed out in this wikipedia article.

    The article confirms what teddy has said regarding the commercialization of this day. Amazing the effects of American influence has had across the rest of the world .. shameful in some ways.
