Father’s Day is a day assigned to truly celebrate men of different races who have embraced the essentiality of fatherhood.
While the United Kingdom, India, Canada and some other countries in the world, celebrate on the third Sunday of every year, some Catholic countries have theirs on 19th March. Places like Australia even celebrate on the second Sunday in September while Finland, Norway and Sweden celebrate in November.
