Father’s Day Breakfast
Fathers also deserve their own special day. TALK English School honored fathers by sponsoring a Father’s Day Breakfast at TALK Fort Lauderdale. Each father was presented with a certificate of appreciation recognizing the great contribution each one gives in his own special way.
Father’s Day in the USA
Father’s Day in the United States is on the third Sunday of June. It celebrates the contribution that fathers and father figures make for their children’s lives. Its origins may lie in a memorial service held for a large group of men, many of them fathers, who were killed in a mining accident in Monongah, West Virginia in 1907.
What Do People Do?
Father’s Day is an occasion to mark and celebrate the contribution that your own father has made to your life. Many people send or give cards or gifts to their fathers and their grandfathers. Common Father’s Day gifts include sports items or clothing, electronic gadgets, outdoor cooking supplies and tools for household maintenance.
Father’s Day is a relatively modern holiday so different families have a range of traditions. These can range from a simple phone call or greetings card to large parties honoring all of the ‘father’ figures in a particular extended family. Father figures can include fathers, step-fathers, fathers-in-law, grandfathers and great-grandfathers and even other male relatives. In the days and weeks before Father’s Day, many schools and Sunday schools help their pupils to prepare a handmade card or small gift for their fathers.
At TALK English Schools center in Fort Lauderdale, we held a breakfast to which student and staff members’ fathers were invited. All students were invited to participate, and the event was a great success. Happy Father’s Day to all the dads out there! Father’s Day is next celebrated on Sunday, June 18, 2017
