FATHER'S DAY

Father's Day, whenever it is celebrated around the world, is an opportunity to recognize fathers for their contributions to their families and to society.  Each country sets its own dates for Father's Day and has some of its own traditions around the opportunity to show love to Dad at home and in the community.
Traditions vary for Father's Day celebrations around the world, according to a Time magazine article in 2015.  For example, some countries link Father's Day to the Feast of St. Joseph, which celebrates Joseph of Nazareth, father of Jesus, which is on March 19.  In Germany, Father's Day is celebrated by men loading wagons with beer and heading off into the woods.  In Russia, Father's Day overlaps with their Defender of the Fatherland Day. So, while fathers are honored, many of them march in military parades in their home towns on the same day. 
Father's Day is celebrated in the United States, Canada, the United Kingdom and in most other countries on the third Sunday in June each year. READ MORE...
