FEATURED IN THE “ARTISTS UNIVERSE” GROUP

Happy Mothering Sunday to all who celebrate this occasion today!
This is a compilation image of St Giles Church in Durham (taken by my husband) and some flowers (taken by myself).

History of Mothering Sunday:

Most Sundays in the year churchgoers in England worship at their nearest parish or ‘daughter church’.

Centuries ago it was considered important for people to return to their home or ‘mother’ church once a year. So each year in the middle of Lent, everyone would visit their ‘mother’ church – the main church or cathedral of the area.

Inevitably the return to the ‘mother’ church became an occasion for family reunions when children who were working away returned home. (It was quite common in those days for children to leave home for work once they were ten years old.)

And most historians think that it was the return to the ‘Mother’ church which led to the tradition of children, particularly those working as domestic servants, or as apprentices, being given the day off to visit their mother and family.

As they walked along the country lanes, children would pick wild flowers or violets to take to church or give to their mother as a small gift.

DEDICATED TO ALL MOTHERS AND “MOTHER-FIGURES” EVERYWHERE – THANK YOU ONE AND ALL
