Mothering Sunday in Britain

it was honored on the fourth Sunday in Lent

it began as a day when apprentices and servants could return home for the day to visit their mothers

they often brought a gift with them, often a "mothering cake" -- a kind of fruitcake or fruit-filled pastry known as simnels.

furmety, a sweetened boiled cereal dish, was often served at the family dinner during Mothering Sunday celebrations

by the 19th century, the holiday had almost completely died out

Mother's Day in Britain -- or Mothering Sunday -- came to be celebrated again after World War II, when American servicemen brought the custom and commercial enterprises used it as an occasion for sales, etc.
