Did you know that Mother’s Day is celebrated in Australia thanks to Mrs Janet Heyden, who helped pioneer it after she started a campaign in Sydney to raise money to buy gifts for lonely or forgotten mothers? The original meaning of Mother’s Day was to acknowledge and support disadvantaged mothers with no current family to support them. Today, through Mrs Heyden’s efforts, Australia now celebrates Mother’s Day on the second Sunday of every May.
As Mother’s Day only comes around once a year, make it count and spoil her. After all, our mums do so much for us and it is often said that Mothers have been called the glue that holds the family together. So let mum relax, take command of the cooking and chores. Run her a bath or tell her to stay in bed. The traditional Mother’s Day breakfast in bed is a great way to start the day, along with a handmake heartfelt gift.
If you are planning on taking her out, we have collated a list of some of the local venues which are holding special Mother’s Day events. We have also included some gift ideas she will love from local businesses.
