Mother's Day


England celebrates Mothering Sunday two months before Canada, Australia, and America celebrate Mother's Day. This causes much confusion on the internet.

@Ice0tea - I really don't know why people go to McDonalds, so you're asking the wrong person. It's awful, terrible food. I think people are just too lazy to make better food themselves, so they go to the "fast-food" places and pay too much for crap that can just barely be called "food".

I agree with you on Subway. It's one of the few 'fast-food' places I'll go to eat. Another is Long John Silvers, a fish place. I know that oil-fried fish fillets aren't very good for a person, but I do stop in there every couple of months - because it does taste pretty good. So long as you ask them to NOT put any of their terrible 'sauces' on it. Another American shame, that. Most of the 'sauces' people put on their food items are just made of sugar syrup, and they're awful. Even ketchup is terrible, it's half syrup. (bleh)

I began by feeling sad, because we do still use the term, "Mother England" from time to time here. But we use it as sort of a " England begat us but was an overbearing mother" sort of way. So I got over it and drank some pineapple juice.

@Schweden
It's also possible that Sister England is not their biological mother, but always served as a kind of mother-figure for them, and that's why they call her 'mother'.

Mothering Sunday is the 4th Sunday of Lent (a downer of a time for celebrating anything).
The tradition in England was to bake and take Mum a Simnel cake.

We choose to call this interesting brand of neglect: Cultural differences
