Children, mainly daughters who had gone to work as domestic servants, would be given the day off on the fourth sunday of Lent to return to their mothers and home parish. The eldest son or daughter would bring a cake, which would be cut and shared by the entire family. Family reunions were the order of the day, with sons and daughters assuming all household duties and preparing a special dinner in honor of their mother.
