    The stifling matriarchal influence in Ms Anna Jarvis is strong.

    I bet that she got pissed off with her friends when they didn`t `play the game right` as a girl.

    Mother`s Day (or Mothering Sunday)in the UK goes back to the 16th century. It was a church tradition (fourth Sunday in Lent) which allowed apprentices and servants a chance to visit their mums.

    It declined in the 19th century and then absorbed some of the American aspects post WW2 as merchants saw a chance of profit.

    Yup- Lordjim- and if I recollect in the UK, it is tied to the liturgical calender being the 4th Sunday in Lent- a moveable feast.
