Mother's Day 2022 may be extra special for a number of people, as it is the first time in two years where no coronavirus restrictions are in place.

Why is Mother's Day on a different date each year?

Mother's Day moves date every year due to the fact that Easter is also celebrated on changing dates each year.

The day always falls on the fourth Sunday of Lent, which is three weeks before Easter Sunday.
