In Australia, like the USA, Mother’s Day is celebrated on the second Sunday in May. Across the world different versions of Mother’s Day are celebrated. In Australia Mother’s Day is known for cheerful celebration when mothers are showered with gifts, greeting cards, and cakes and are taken out to lunch by their families. A distinctive Mother’s Day celebration is observed in Ethiopia where families settle down for a get-together, sing songs, eat a large feast that is a part of Antrosht and make cheerful celebrations to honour motherhood.
