There are several dates on which Father's Day is celebrated, in some countries it is celebrated on March 19, a date that coincides with the celebration of Saint Joseph's Day. On this day, the dedication, work and accompaniment of good parents in the process of raising children is celebrated, for the example of a dedicated and selfless father that Saint Joseph gave us.
The teacher Manuela Vicente Ferrero, in Spain, thought it would be a good idea for her students to celebrate the date at the school in the Barrio de Belmonte, in Madrid.
For the celebration, Manuela organized a mass and her students made crafts to give to their parents. This celebration became a tradition that was maintained until it was officially Father's Day in Spain, then it was adopted in several countries, including Andorra, Belgium, Croatia, Liechtenstein, Honduras, Italy, Mozambique and Portugal.
Another day to celebrate the same concept of a responsible father devoted to his children is the third Sunday of June, this day is celebrated in countries such as Argentina, Aruba, Barbados, Canada, Chile, China, Colombia, Costa Rica, Cuba, Ecuador , United States, Ethiopia, France, the Philippines, Paraguay, Puerto Rico, Greece, India, Japan, Mexico, Panama, the United Kingdom, the Dominican Republic, Suriname, Ukraine, Venezuela and Vietnam.
The date is really a social cliché, what really matters is that there are very good parents who, from the moment they found out that their children were on the way, felt immense happiness, they were, are and will continue to be as long as life allows it, an active part and loving her children. Those parents have no replacement, they have no comparison, and they deserve to be celebrated and treated as our greatest treasure every day. It is worth pampering those parents and giving them all the love in the world, what a blessing those of us who have a really good father have!
