Mother’s Day in Ireland

Mother’s Day in Ireland

“So cue mounts of fresh flowers at sale in all garage forecourts today, plus big boxes of chocolates. Because it is Mother’s Day in Ireland. Really. Today.

Or not … actually it is just called ‘Mother’s Day’ in the vernacular, in reality it is Mothering Sunday. A Christian holiday, falling on the 4th Sunday in Lent.”

Languages do matter!
