I remembered "Enemy of Beowulf" because my Lit. teacher made us analyze the one line, "Grendel came greedily loping" over and over again, so it's been stuck in my head ever since then! >.

I kind of knew it because I saw a preview of it on a dvd I watched recently. I still missed it, though, because I thought it was just called Big Momma. Oh, well.

Mothering Sunday for Mother's Day, or are they 2 different things in the US?

Looking it up (because I'd never heard of it), the US doesn't have Mothering Sunday. It's a religious holiday that takes place on the third Sunday in Lent, while the US Mother's Day is a secular holiday on the second Sunday in May.

Well actually, assuming roleybob is from the UK, he's right: In the UK (and Ireland, I think?), while Mothering Sunday's date is calculated off the lunar calendar as described, it is exactly analogous to Mother's Day in the US, and therefore (IMHO, that is ;-) should be accepted.

I am indeed from the UK - I've been led to believe that it started off as Mothering Sunday which was a religious holiday during which Christians were supposed to visit their mother church (not sure how this differs from their normal church), and was later appropriated as a way for gift card shops to make more money (still on the same date)
