Thai Mother’s Day Celebration

Mother’s Day in Thailand is celebrated each year on August 12. On Mother’s Day, people celebrate the special bond between a mother and her children. However, in Thailand, Mother’s Day also commemorates Her Majesty Queen Sirikit’s birthday. ‘Dok mali’, or jasmines are the traditional gift for Thailand Mother’s Day. Jasmine is associated with ‘purity’ and ‘gentleness’ in Thai culture. Children get garlands and bouquets of jasmine flowers for their mothers. Other than that, it’s also common to see children and mothers going out for lunch, participating in Mother’s Day events, and spending time with each other. This is a national holiday in Thailand.

Mother’s Day preparations also extend to schools, where mothers are often invited so that their child may prostrate at their feet—a common gesture of deep respect in Thailand, especially for parents. If you want to wish someone a “Happy Mother’s Day,” try saying, “Suk san wan mae.”

We are celebrating and having the ceremony on August 11th, 2024 at NMR Meditation Center.
