Mothers Day is coming, a brief history and delivery options.....

The earliest Mother's Day celebrations can be traced back to the spring celebrations of ancient Greece in honor of Rhea, the Mother of the Gods.
During the 1600's, England celebrated a day called "Mothering Sunday". Celebrated on the 4th Sunday of Lent (the 40 day period leading up to Easter),

"Mothering Sunday" honored the mothers of England.

During this time many of the England's poor worked as servants for the wealthy. As most jobs were located far from their homes, the servants would live at the houses of their employers.
On Mothering Sunday the servants would have the day off and were encouraged to return home and spend the day with their mothers.

Wishing to buy that perfect gift for your wonderful mother then look no further than Apple Pie House, we will be delivering upto and including Friday 16th, for a saturday delivery*.
