Mother’s Day originally dates back to ancient Greek times but in England, more recent origins of this special day are recorded during the 1600's.  

It was originally a day for Christians to visit their 'mother church'. On the fourth Sunday of Lent, servants were given the day off to the return to their hometown and worship with their families. Returning home, young people would pick wild flowers to place in the church, or to give to mums, which is why we often give flowers today.
