Mother’s Day is celebrated on August 12th of every year in honor of Her Majesty Queen Sirikit’s Birthday. This day is dedicated to honoring the mother of the Thai nation as well as all the mothers and their love for their family. “Wan Mae” as it is also known in Thailand is also a national holiday.
Across the globe, Mother’s Day is commemorating the irreplaceable role of a mother in every household. The effort and sacrifice she has put in to raise her children and the effort she makes to keep their home clean, safe, and happy is priceless. Her presence in each household makes the difference between a house and a home. This special day is dedicated to saying thank you for everything she does for the family.
The Jasmine flower has been a symbol for purity and gentleness, a beautiful representation of motherhood. Arranged as a garland, the sweet-smelling flower is a conventional gift for mothers on this day.
Among the activities done during this day is offering merit to the Buddhist monks and temples. Some would hand food to the monks during their early morning rounds while others proceed to the temples to offer more merit.
It is also customary for families to go out for a meal or plan an outing. Many restaurants and shopping malls offer promotions to celebrate the day. Many famous spots also offer fun-filled activities for moms and their kids such as games, arts and crafts and various programs.
