Mother’s Day is a traditional occasion that honours all mothers. This is an important occasion that is celebrated in most of the countries around the world. It is the day when the significance and contributions of mothers in the society are hailed, and the appreciation of the many influences, lessons, care, and love they give. In most countries, the Mother’s Day celebration falls on the second Sunday of May.

How Australians Pay Tribute to Mothers on Mother’s Day

Australians are always excited in the coming of the Mother’s Day. It is the people’s way of showing gratitude to the many efforts, roles, and love the mothers give. This occasion also pays tribute to people who act like mothers such as teachers, guardians, stepmothers, foster mothers, aunts, and friends.

The day for mothers is one of the most anticipated events in Australia. Because it is the best time to treat mothers to a fine dining and scrumptious dishes, many restaurants arrange Mother’s Day special offer. It is also the same in shopping malls, where special discounts to mothers are given. Massage centres and salons are also in-demand during this day because mothers deserve a treat through massage and pampering. TV programs pay tribute to mothers by presenting movies, entertainment, and documentary about them.

Of course, the traditional gift-giving will never be out of the scene on Mother’s Day. Apart from material gifts that would delight mothers, children also give their mothers greeting cards either brought from the bookstore or especially hand-made by them. Some children also surprise their mothers with their own home-cooked delightful dishes, to be shared either on breakfast, lunch, or dinner. Cakes with special greetings on top are always saleable on Mother’s Day. A bunch of fresh smelling flowers never fail to bring joy to mothers. This is why flower shops are also so busy a day before the Mother’s Day, or during Mother’s Day itself.

There are also families who opt to go out to Australia’s countryside to experience the beaches and some of the country’s natural assets. Since mothers are always on their feet to do mother duties, as well as to provide endless love and care, to relax in the comforts of Australia’s nature is one of the best gifts mothers can have. 

Mother’s Day and Public Holiday

Mother’s Day is always being celebrated on the second Sunday of May. Being a Sunday, public and private offices, and schools do not operate on Mother’s Day. Commercial areas are busy during this day to make way to the Mother’s Day celebration. Parks are also a favourite family bonding venue, most especially on Mother’s Day, apart from the shopping malls and restaurants.
