When is Mothers Day in Australia? Sunday the 10th of May, 2020.
We celebrate Mothers Day on the second Sunday of May in Australia. So Mother's Day is on Sunday the 10th of May 2020 (10/05/2020).
However, the answer to ‘What date is Mothers Day?’ differs depending on what country you’re in. While, like Australia, the USA also celebrate Mothers Day on the second Sunday of May — the UK celebrate it exactly three weeks before Easter Sunday.
But for those down under, make sure you have your Mothers day gifts ready by the second Sunday of May — the 10th of May in 2020.
Is Mother's Day a public holiday?
No. Mums don’t ever get a day off - so why should we?! Unfortunately, Mother’s Day is not a public holiday. Many Mums are still working on their special day. So if your Mum is working on Mothers Day — you better make sure you spoil them after work!
And remember, restaurants and bars can get very busy with families celebrating together on Mother’s Day. So if you’re planning to take Mum out to a nice dinner; make a booking.
What is Mother's Day and why do we celebrate it?
Mothers Day is a special day to celebrate how awesome Mums are. You already know why we celebrate it; because Mums give us the help, love, and support that makes all the difference in the world. They give us everything — every day. So Mothers Day is our chance to let them know how much we appreciate everything they do for us.
