Mother's Day Australia : Second Sunday in May

 Like in most countries in the world, Mother's Day in Australia is celebrated on the second Sunday of the month May. Mother's Day is not an official public holiday.


People in Australia have family reunions to honour their mums and celebrate motherhood. Gift giving has become part of the Mother's Day celebrations. A truly Australian Mother's Day gift is the Chrysanthemum. This flower is naturally in season in the month May and it's name ends in "mum" which makes it the perfect gift. Men also use Chrysanthemums as "boutonnière", a decorative flower in the lapels of a jacket or coat. Wearing the Chrysanthemum on Mother's Day is another way for men to show respect and appreciation for mothers. See also Father's Day.
