How Father's Day is Celebrated Around the World

A day to celebrate fathers and grandfathers has become commonplace in most countries around the world. In today's blog, your favorite Lake of the Ozarks resort thought it would be fun to share with you some of the traditions and ways that Father's Day is celebrated in countries around the globe.

Russia


In Russia, the Father's Day equivalent is a celebration that evolved from a military commemoration to an unofficial tribute to all men. Known as Defender of the Fatherland Day, this holiday is celebrated on February 23 each year. Parades celebrate the Russian Armed Forces and men can expect to receive small gifts from the women in their lives.

Nepal 


In Nepal. Father's Day is celebrated in late summer. The Nepalese celebration of fathers is known as Gokarna Aunsi, which literally translates to, "cow earned no moon night." Aside from gift giving, a ceremony is performed in which the boys touch their heads to their father's feet and the girls touch their heads to their father's hands.

Mexico


In Mexico, a variety of festivities accompany all holidays, including Father's Day. Though not an "official holiday," on the third Sunday in June, Mexicans give gifts to their fathers and celebrate with food and music. Some also participate in the 21 kilometer race in Mexico City, the “Carrera Día del Padre 21K Bosque de Tlalpan.”

Thailand 


In Thailand, Father's Day is celebrated on December 5th, the birthday of the widely admired King Bhumibol Adulyadej. On this day, the King gives an annual speech, and tradition has it that Thais give their fathers and grandfathers the Canna flower, which is considered to have a masculine association.

Germany 


The Germans do Father's Day a little differently. On the 40th day of Easter, Ascension Day, German men have the tradition of organizing hikes and other gatherings to celebrate fathers. They make sure that these events are well-supplied with food and alcohol. This holiday is known as Vatertag.

Brazil


In Brazil, Father's Day is called Dia dos Pais, and this holiday is all about the meat. Families father together for barbeques, known as churrascos, either at home or at a Brazilian steakhouse, a churrascaria. It is celebrated on the second Sunday of August each year.

Japan 


Father's Day in Japan is known as Chichi No Hi, and is celebrated on the 3rd Sunday in June. This is a time when children present their dads with homemade gifts ranging from origami to beer glasses or sweets. The meal is usually celebrated by serving seafood, most commonly crab and prawns.

South Africa


In South Africa, Father's Day is celebrated similarly to the U.S. holiday. On the 3rd Sunday in June, children present their fathers with gifts and cards. They also spend the day fishing in hopes of catching something for dinner. If fishing it not their forte, many families spend the day picnicking instead.

Summerset Inn Resort would like to wish all the fathers and grandfathers out there a very happy Father's Day weekend! Whether you're spending this time here with us at the resort or somewhere else, we hope you have a wonderful time with family and friends.
