Father’s Day is a day of honoring fatherhood and paternal bonds, as well as the influence of fathers in society. In the United Arab Emirates, Father’s Day is celebrated on June 21, generally coinciding with midsummer’s day. As the name suggests, Father’s Day is a special occasion that commemorates fathers and father figures around the world and acknowledges and honors their efforts and contributions towards raising their children. Akin to Mother’s Day, this day aims to throw light on the influence fathers have in the lives of their kids, and on the society at large. While the dates vary from country to country, the day is largely celebrated on the third Sunday in June. As such, this year, it will be celebrated on June 21.
This day is largely a celebration. You can make it extra special for your father and/or father figure, by reminding them of how much they mean to you. Remembering their love and the sacrifices they have made for you, and giving them their due, in the form of love and respect, can be the simplest and the most heartfelt thing you can do on the day.
Remember that just like mothers, fathers are important, too, and that they have made many sacrifices for you, which perhaps you may not even be aware of. Love them, cherish them and celebrate them.
