3 Awesome Ways to Celebrate Father’s Day – Make Your Dad Feel Extra Special on June 21st

Father’s Day is an annual event that’s celebrated almost in every part of the world to honor fathers. In the United States, it’s celebrated on the third Sunday in June. This year, it falls on June 21st. Many other countries celebrate Father’s Day on the same date.

However, Catholic countries in Europe celebrate the occasion on March 19 of each year in honor of Saint Joseph, the legal father of Jesus Christ. In other parts of the world, the event is celebrated on other dates in March, April, and June, according to the home nation’s customs.

Father’s Day is a day when we have the opportunity to give extra recognition and appreciation for everything that our fathers have done for us. It’s an opportunity for us to make our dads feel extra special and loved, a chance to let them know that we appreciate all their efforts in taking care of us since we were little.

America had its first Father’s Day celebration on June 19, 1910. It was first celebrated only in the state of Washington until President Woodrow Wilson declared Mother’s Day to be an official holiday, Father’s Day followed suit and was celebrated nationwide as well.

Other cultures have their unique ways of celebrating the occasion, but the main reason behind remains the same: It’s a celebration of how great all fathers are.

 

Things You Can Do On Father’s Day

It’s important to remember that our dads love us and appreciate everything that we do, no matter how big or small it is. When you’re planning something for your father during Father’s Day, it doesn’t have to be flashy and expensive. You don’t need to go all out just to show your dad how thankful you are to have them in your life.

Something simple that comes from your heart will be more than enough to crack a smile on your dad’s face that you’ll remember for a lifetime.

There are tons of creative ways you can do to celebrate Father’s Day on a budget. After all, it’s the thought, not the material gift, that counts. Here are some of these ways:

  • A fishing trip or a beach trip.

Plan a fishing trip with your dad and have him spend the day relaxing with his favorite rod in hand. Spending a quiet afternoon fishing — temporarily escaping from all the responsibilities that being a father entails — is more than enough for some stressed-out dads out there. If fishing isn’t his thing, then you can plan a beach trip with the entire family. Relax the day away and soak in the sun with your dad beside you.

  • Go-kart racing.

Fuel your dad’s need for speed by taking him to the race track! Give your dad an adrenaline rush that he won’t forget. Let your siblings and other family members join you and turn it into a race and see who’s the fastest on the track!

  • Get grilling!

Everyone loves barbecue, and we bet your dad loves it, too. Fire up the grill and host a barbecue party. If your dad loves to cook, let him take the lead on grilling stuff up. Make sure you invite his close friends and their families as well.

 

Some Dads Just Want Their Kids to Get Better

Fathers will do anything for their children, especially when they’re sick. These dads don’t want to get anything for themselves during Father’s Day so long as their little ones get better.

Unfortunately, some fathers lack the financial resources to pay for the cost of their children’s hospitalization and treatment. They badly need help.
