Despite where you come from, moms should always receive love and gratitude toward their children all year around.
In Thailand, people celebrate Mother’s Day each year on August 12. It is the time for children to express their special thankfulness to their moms in the spotlight for the day. Most children often prepare jasmine flowers to give to moms, which represent purity and gentleness in Thai culture.
Mother’s Day is also a celebration for the Mother of all Thai people, Her Majesty Queen Sirikit. People often use theportrait of the queen with colorful lights in celebrating her birthday across the country.
Another important part for this day is distributing alms to monks as well as the people who are mostly in need.
We will never know what the future brings for us, so call your mom and say “I love you” to her right now.
