Celebrate Mother’s Day together on August 12th. Let’s take this opportunity to thank your mother for her unconditional love. Kneel down and present white jasmine flowers or garlands to show your love and gratitude.
Like many important occasions, alms giving to monks forms a meaningful part of the traditional Mother’s Day celebrations. Early in the morning, ceremonies are held to give offerings of food to Thailand’s saffron-robed Buddhist monks.
It’s also become quite common for families to celebrate their love for mom by taking her out for a special meal. Particularly in Bangkok and other large cities and developed locations like Chiang Mai and Phuket, many restaurants offer Mother’s Day specials. Hotels and resorts also offer Mother’s Day packages. So if you are visiting or residing in Thailand during this period you may want to be on the look out for restaurant and hotel specials.
