Mothering Sunday was what we used to celebrate in the UK. To begin with it was a celebration of the church, but shifted more toward a celebration of the maternal parent. Before it switched all the way, as celebrations like Christmas had done from its earlier roots, the Americans built a gift shop invented Mother's Day, and other associated family celebrations to sell us guff be nice to a family member one Sunday a year.

From the Wiki entry:

The modern American holiday of Mother's Day was first celebrated in 1908, when Anna Jarvis held a memorial for her mother in Grafton, West Virginia. Her campaign to make "Mother's Day" a recognized holiday in the United States began in 1905, the year her beloved mother, Ann Reeves Jarvis, died. Anna’s mission was to honor her own mother by continuing work she had started and to set aside a day to honor mothers, "the person who has done more for you than anyone in the world." Anna's mother, Ann Jarvis, was a peace activist who had cared for wounded soldiers on both sides of the Civil War and created Mother’s Day Work Clubs to address public health issues.

Due to the campaign efforts of Anna Jarvis, several states officially recognized Mother's Day, the first in 1910 being West Virginia, Jarvis’ home state. In 1914 Woodrow Wilson signed the proclamation creating Mother’s Day, the second Sunday in May, as a national holiday to honor mothers. In a thank-you note to Wilson, Jarvis wrote of a “great Home Day of our country for sons and daughters to honor their mothers and fathers and homes in a way that will perpetuate family ties and give emphasis to true home life.”

I'm currently making a remix of Maxwell's Silver Hammer. It sounds pretty good so far.

I also want to include a guitar solo - which would you like the most?
