Today is Mothering Sunday in United Kingdom


Mothering Sunday, sometimes known as Mother's Day, is held on the fourth Sunday of Lent. It is exactly three weeks before Easter Sunday and usually falls in the second half of March or the beginning of April.
Traditionally, people visited the church where they were baptized. Mothering Sunday is now a celebration of motherhood. People visit and take gifts to their mothers and grandmothers.

Spring forward 2014: When do the clocks change and British Summer Time begin?

It’s spring time, and apart from blooming daffodils and gambolling lambs this means one thing: the low-level hum of worry as the general population tries to remember when the damn clocks change. So, to save all that mental wear and tear, here goes nothing: the clocks will go forward one hour on March 30th, a Sunday that also happens to be Mother’s Day. British Summer Time always begins on the last Sunday of March and ends on the last Sunday of October.
