Pappa, father, baba, vater, padre… Dear dad has many names. Dads come in different shapes and sizes all over the world. They are all different, but one thing they have in common is a special day called Father’s Day. This is a day when we shower our dads with appreciation and, if they’re lucky, a gift or two. The tradition can be found in over 111 countries around the world, and this year the day will be honoured on 16 June in the UK. However, Father’s Day falls on different dates depending on each country’s own tradition.
Some dads are so nice they should be celebrated twice, and if you want to praise your father more than once this year, check out the dates that different countries around the world celebrate Father’s Day.
