the boy and his father

Father’s Day is such a special day to recognize, and honor, all the father’s and father’s-to-be, all over the world.

Father’s Day is celebrated in the US, and many other countries, on June 20th, this year.  However, numerous other countries dedicate this holiday to their dads on different days.  In Ukraine, it is also celebrated this Sunday, but dads in Poland have to wait until Wednesday, June 23rd.

If your country celebrates Father’s Day on a different day yet, please share it with us.

Someone shared with me a very nice statement about what is a Father, presented to him by his son:


F - Finds time to assist his child

A - Actively participates in his child’s future

T - Takes the lead in hard work

H - Has his child’s best interest at heart

E - Enjoys spending time with his child

R - Rescues his child from harm

    Aww that is such a sweet little poem with the word Father…I love that. We had a really nice Father’s Day…took the daughters to see Toy Story 3 and I took my dad out for dinner the next day. It was great. How was yours? Love that fruit salad…its an easy one for me so I might try it! :)

    Sounds like you all had fun on Father’s Day. That’s wonderful!
    This summer started on a very hot note already, so all sorts of salads sound great to me already.

    Isn’t it? It was so lovely that a son presented his dad with it at a “Danish with Dad” get together at the school.
