Father's Day is a holiday of honoring fatherhood and paternal bonds, as well as the influence of fathers in society. In Catholic countries of Europe, it has been celebrated on March 19 as Saint Joseph's Day since the Middle Ages. In the United States, Father's Day was founded by Sonora Smart Dodd, and celebrated on the third Sunday of June for the first time in 1910. The day is held on various dates across the world, and different regions maintain their own traditions of honoring fatherhood.
In the People's Republic of China, Father's Day is not an official legal holiday, but more and more people choose to express their gratitude to their fathers on this day. Those who are close to each other will cook a feast in person to enjoy with their parents; some will choose to go out to eat with their parents, take pictures and share them on their social media. If it is far from home, people will choose to send red packets on WeChat to celebrate the holiday for their fathers.
We hope that more and more people will remember such meaningful festivals, such as Mother's Day, Father's Day, Double Ninth Festival (Respect for the Aged Day), and hope that the social family will become more and more harmonious.
