Mother's Day 2009

Today is ANZAC Day, however, lest we forget, Mother’s Day is just around the corner…


Mother’s Day falls on Sunday, May 10, 2009.

Mother's Day is celebrated to honor all mothers and express gratitude for the hardships they bear in bringing up a child.

 Most countries including Papua New Guinea celebrate Mother’s Day on the second Sunday of May.

People take the day as an opportunity to pay tribute to their mothers and thank them for all their love and support.

The day has become hugely popular and in Papua New Guinea, as is the case in several countries around the world, phone lines operated by Telikom and Digicel witness maximum traffic.

There is also a tradition of gifting flowers, cards and others gift to mothers on the Mothers Day.

The festival has become commercialised to a great extent.

Florists, card manufacturers and gift sellers see huge business potential in the day and make good money through a rigorous advertising campaign.

Think of your Mothers on the day!
