Treating your Mother on Mother's Day Mother's Day Special Offers 2011 Sunday 3rd AprilMother's Day is a world wide tradition that can be traced back to at least the times of the Ancient Greeks. Back then spring festivals were held in honour of Rhea, mother of the Gods. The 17th century saw the feast become a set date on the English landmark as Mothering Sunday. Falling on the fourth Sunday of Lent, three weeks before Easter, Mothering Sunday was a relaxing of the fasting rules for Lent and an opportunity for the girls working away from home to return to their families for the day. The family get together was the time to bring home flowers and gifts - often cakes. The day still falls on the fourth Sunday of Lent but is now known as Mother's Day and is generally associated with lavish bouquets of flowers - nearly £100million worth of flowers for the one day in the UK! So, this year, why not treat your Mum to a meal out in one of the top restaurants in London. There is such a huge and wide choice with cuisine from all over the world.
