History of Mother’s Day

On Sunday many Australians will spend the day celebrating their mother’s and other special women in their lives.

Some mums may be given cards, flowers and gifts, while others may enjoy breakfast in bed or a lunch out.

The day has long been a part of the Australian calendar, but where did the idea to dedicate the second Sunday in May to honouring motherhood come from? – read more here.
