On these days, American children show their appreciation by treating fathers, mothers, or those who have served as parental figures in their lives, to something special. Mother’s Day is celebrated on the second Sunday in May and Father’s Day is recognized on the third Sunday in June.
1. Mother’s Day
In most countries, Mother’s Day is celebrated on the second Sunday in May, among them the USA, Canada, most European countries, Australia, New Zealand, India, China, Japan, the Philippines and South Africa. One notable exception to this rule is the UK and Ireland, which celebrate Mother’s Day on the fourth Sunday in Lent. Most East European countries celebrate Mother’s Day on March 8th
On Mother’s Day, American children of all ages treat their mothers to something special. It is the day when children, young and old, try to show, in a tangible way, how much they appreciate their mothers or those who have served as mother figures in their lives.
On Mother’s Day morning, some American children follow the tradition of serving their mothers breakfast in bed. Other children will give their mothers gifts that they have made themselves or bought in stores. Adults also give their mothers cards, gifts, and flowers—often red carnations, the official Mother’s Day flower. If their mothers are deceased, they may bring white carnations or other flowers to their gravesites. Mother’s Day is the busiest day of the year for American restaurants. On her special day, family members do not want Mom to have to cook dinner!
In the United States, the idea of Mother’s Day was first introduced in 1872 by Julia Ward Howe, a famous writer and social reformer of the time. However, the establishment of an official day to honor mothers was due largely to the perseverance and love of one daughter, Anna Jarvis.
2. Father’s Day
In many countries, Father’s Day is celebrated on the third Sunday in June, among them the USA, Canada, the UK, France, India, China, Japan, the Philippines and South Africa.
However, it is also widely celebrated on other days, for example on February 23rd (Russia). March 19th (Italy, Portugal and Spain), Ascension Day (Germany), the first Sunday in June (Switzerland), the second Sunday in June (Austria and Belgium), June 21st, the first day of summer (Lebanon, Egypt, Jordan & Syria), first Sunday of September (Australia, New Zealand)…
The United States is one of the few countries in the world that has an official day on which fathers are honored by their children. On Father’s Day, fathers and all men who act as father figures, all across the United States are given presents, treated to dinner, or otherwise made to feel special.
When children can’t visit their fathers, they usually contact their father by telephone or send a greeting card. The cards might be traditional and sentimental, or whimsical so fathers laugh when they open them. Father’s Day gifts may be store-bought or hand-made, and traditional gifts might include a tie, shirt, sports item, or a child’s own drawing. Some children give their fathers heartfelt thanks for always being there when they needed “Dad.”
The origin of Father’s Day is not clear. Some say that it began with a church service in West Virginia in 1908. Others say the first Father’s Day was held in Vancouver, Washington.
States and organizations began lobbying Congress to declare an annual Father’s Day. In 1916, President Woodrow Wilson approved of this idea, but it was not until 1924 that President Calvin Coolidge made it a national event. He declared that the official recognition of Father’s Day was to “establish more intimate relations between fathers and their children and to impress upon fathers the full measure of their obligations.”
Since then, fathers have been honored and recognized by their families throughout the country on the third Sunday in June. In 1966, President Lyndon Johnson signed a presidential proclamation making Father’s Day a national commemorative day.
