Mother's Day doesn't exist in the UK

Mothering Sunday, however, is on Sunday 22 March this year so you have a bit of time

Thanks for that, for some reason I had it in my head it was next week and that my card wouldn't get there in time

Well at least I'm prepared.

Sometimes it's earlier, all depends on when Easter falls.

Thanks everyone, I forgot all about this until I saw this thread.

What I can never understand is in the US, Mothers day (Mothering Sunday), is not on the same day as the UK, but Fathers day is. Why is that I wonder?

Is it referred to as Mothering Sunday at all in the US? Whenever I refer to it as that in Aus, people look very confused - I only ever hear it called Mothers Day there.

I know, once you lived abroad for awhile its hard to stay on top of this type of stuff. I better give the OP some karma for starting this thread, otherwise I be none the wiser and March would have come and gone and I would then be in the dog house lol

I aim to please But your right, it is so easy to forget these sort of dates. Glad I got confused now as I can relax knowing that I have a bit more time.
