Father’s Day

Father’s Day is on the third Sunday of June, so, unlike Christmas Day for example, it is not on the same date every year. It is not a public holiday and as it is on a Sunday, people do not take time off work to celebrate it.

It is a day to honour your father or step-father, perhaps with a thoughtful treat, outing or visit. Handmade Father’s Day gifts are often made by children in schools and nurseries, or in voluntary clubs such as the Girlguiding and Scouting movements. On the day, families may make a special effort to go out to restaurants or to family leisure attractions.
