    Here in Australia, when we go to church on Mothers Day, which is the 2nd Sunday in May (13th next year 2007) we Mums get presented with small handmade items, like flowers or bookmarks. I have a bookmark that has some pretty beads threaded onto a length of plaited embroidery silks.

    Fathers Day is the 1st Sunday in September and small handmade items are given to Dads when they arrive at church too. And because I now live in a country that has palm trees, on Palm Sunday, we are sometimes given small crosses made from palm leaves.

    In Thailand, Mother’s Day falls on 12 August of every year as we celebrate our beloved Queen Sirikit’s birth anniversary. It is also a national holiday, and people normally give presents or cards to their mother and some also take her out to a nice meal as a special treat and thanksgiving for her never failing affection and life-long sacrifice. There are also street decorations to celebrate Queen Sirikit’s birthday, and people and official places will put up the national flag to mark the event. The Queen herself will make public appearance and give a special speech to people in the early evening, which is broadcast live to those who are not fortunate enough to attend the ceremony. It’s a very special day all in all, as the significance of motherhood realised in every culture testifies.
