To complement the Mother’s Day celebration, Father’s Day was created. This event happens world-wide on 3rd Sunday of June, but there are few countries who celebrate it on a different date. Father’s day is a celebration that honours all fathers, their contribution to the society, and their role in keeping a family.

The special meal may be cooked at home, or maybe from the father’s favourite restaurant. Some families go out of town so they can experience the beach or the mountain sides on Father’s Day. Some fathers prefer just strolling in the park and find a relaxing spot there. The religious community also takes time to hear mass or attend religious gathering during this special day for fathers.
