Mothers Day?

I've been a bit confused about the number of adverts and mentions of mothers day online this week, as far as I was aware it was back before Easter like it normally is.

So, ok, this is easily explainable - America have Mother's day on a different day to Mothering Sunday.

However, this doesn't explain how I've not noticed this before. Surely it's the same old internet it's been for the past few years and America have been holding Mother's day on a different day to us for all of those?

Yes. In the UK it stems from a Christian tradition of that Sunday being related to Jerusalem, our mother. In the US it's pure Hallmark.
