Why do we give flowers on Mother's Day?
There are various suggested reasons as to why we give flowers and floral gifts on Mother's Day. Mothering Sunday falls on the fourth Sunday of Lent, three weeks before Easter Sunday, so it is often said that gifting spring flowers is evocative of the season - with varieties including tulips, daffodils, roses, and carnations being the official Mother's Day flowers. This is as well as flowers being physical symbols of life and fertility, things that mothers often represent.
