United Kingdom Mothers Day Flowers
From the very beginnings, Mother's Day was established as a day for each family to honour their mother. As an occasion, Mother's Day is celebrated on various different days in many places around the world, including United Kingdom, where Mother's Day is a very important occasion. Mother's Day complements Father's Day, the celebration honouring fathers.
Mother's Day is a relatively modern concept, not to be confused with the 16th century celebration of Mothering Sunday.
In almost all countries around the world, but especially in United Kingdom, flowers have become a symbolic gift of Mother's Day. Amongst other flowers, carnations have become the most common flowers for Mother's Day, since they were delivered at one of its first celebrations by its founder. This also started the custom of wearing a carnation on Mother's Day.
