But the roots of Mothers Day history can also be traced to the UK where a Mothering Sunday was celebrated much before the festivalsaw the light of the day in the US. However, the celebration of the festival as it is seen today isa recent phenomenon and not even a hundred years old. Today the festival of Mothers day is celebrated across 46 countries (though on different dates) and is a hugely popular affair.
