Father's Day?

Post by Kumani » Sun 06.15.2008 5:52 pm

Hi, sorry if this topic doesn't belong here.

But was Sunday Father's Day in Japan? Just wanted to know since it's Father's Day in almost every country. Thanks :wink:

The third Sunday in June is certainly the most popular date for Fathers' Day world wide.

In Australia (and New Zealand) Fathers' Day is the first Sunday in September.

Although in Japan, mother's day is a time of great amusement, and father's day is a time for material inappropriate for children.

Yeah, funny thing, I just recently realized that, that almost everywhere else Father's day is in June.
In my country Father's day always is and has been on the 19th of March, and Mother's day on the first Sunday of May.

What about Mother's day in your country?
