Mother's Day: A day for someone special

Written by Amanda Spalding on May 3, 2017 10:45:07 AM

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.

Mothering Sunday is a holiday celebrated by Catholic and Protestant (not Orthodox) Christians in some parts of Europe. It falls on the fourth Sunday in Lent, three weeks before Easter. Once observed as a day on which people would visit their "mother" church, it has become an occasion for honouring the mothers of children and giving them presents. It is increasingly being called Mother's Day, although that has always been a secular event quite different from the original Mothering Sunday. In the UK and Ireland, Mothering Sunday is celebrated in the same way as Mother's Day is celebrated elsewhere.

Swish Fashion is celebrating Mother’s Day 2017 with a partnership with MOMMA, by offering Swish customers a chance to win a $500 gift pack that consists of a $250 Swish gift voucher, and a $250 MOMMA mineral make up and skincare hamper.

Both MOMMA and Swish Fashion are known for their Australian made products and superior quality.  MOMMA stands for Ministry of Mineral Makeup Australia and their cosmetics are superior quality 100% vegan and cruelty free.

This gift pack is perfect for Aussie mums.

My birthday is on Star Wars Day – May the 4th be with you - which is the same time as the 5th birthday of the Orange Swish Fashion store.  Unfortunately I will miss the celebrations as I will be at a conference in Penrith, to which I will take my light sabre!

I am not a mother, but a couple of years ago the dogs did buy my husband Darrell a Father’s Day gift, so I am hoping that he will realise that Opal and Jasper need to buy me a Mother’s Day Plus Size fashion gift from Swish Fashion for Mother’s Day, and I recommend this top as I somehow managed to leave it in the store when I tried it on last weekend.
