Father’s Day Elsewhere

When is Father’s Day celebrated in other countries? Often, Father’s Day is set to coincide with the birth of the founding leader or king, for example, Argentina and Thailand. Australia and New Zealand observe this festival on the first Sunday of September. Roman Catholics usually honor fathers on Saint Joseph’s Day. Islamic countries such as Iran celebrate it on June 18. Interestingly, Taiwan celebrates Father’s Day on August 8, as the pronunciation of the word for 8 is similar to a character that means father in China.
