Father’s Day!

As you are probably aware, Sunday is Father’s Day! Most of the US is doing something in relation to their fathers, celebrating the life and relationship they have crafted over years.

Then there are people like me who have never celebrated it and have no experience with it. I never knew my father so instead, I took the opportunity to find out what people do around the world to honor their fathers.

Father’s Day started in the states around 1910. It took until 1972 to get it a legal holiday! Now it’s a time we cherish, but we’re not the only ones. In this video, I explore the Philippines, Brazil, Thailand, Taiwan, Germany, and Iran. Some are very similar, some are quite not, and it might surprise you which is which.

What are your Father’s Day traditions? I’d love to hear from anyone who celebrates the holiday!
