September 7th – Father’s Day

Fathers Day Pt 2

What better way to celebrate Father’s Day than by surrounding yourself with family, food and perhaps a ukelele.

The Father’s Day tradition is believed to have started in 1908, as a means to complement the recently established Mother’s Day.

In Australia we set aside the first Sunday in September for Father’s Day, along with our Pacific neighbours New Zealand, Fiji and Papua New Guinea. Most nations, around 75 of them, observe Father’s Day on the 3rd Sunday in June.

And I wouldn’t want to let any stereotypes go to waste either. After feeding at a table with great company, BBQ meat and amazing salads, I took my wine to the couch to study the football … through the backs of my eyelids.
