Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)
Malaysians usually celebrate Father’s Day on the 19th of June as well as another countries. Although, showing appreciation, love and, gratitude to our parent should not be expressed on the specific day, but instead showing them every day; we should not forget and ignore the date on the 19th of June.
An American lady named Sonora Smart Dodd is credited for the original idea of celebrating fathers on Father’s Day. She came up with that brilliant idea in 1909, while she was listening to a sermon on Mother’s Day, which at that time Mother’s Day was counted in the calendar as a holiday. She received support from the local religious leaders and the first Father’s Day was celebrated on 19th June 1910, on the birthday of Sonora Smart Dodd’s father. The gifts given on Father’s Day in Malaysia are inspired by the idea of Western society as this celebration is initiated by them.
We give people gifts, including fathers, to show them that we are grateful for them and value their role in our life. Although the father’s sacrifice and efforts to become a husband, dad, breadwinner of the family, educator, great mechanics in repairing malfunctioning appliances at home, and multiple roles in the family and society are incomparable to any wealth and property in this world, the sincere gift-giving can reflect our appreciation to them.
Father’s Day is more special when you spend it together. Apart from expressing love and appreciation to your father through gifts, a mini celebration event at home, and celebrating it with a few balloons and confetti, you may express your love and appreciation through the act of service. Although you are busy, you can spend your time helping your father gardening in the backyard, bringing him to watch his favourite sports in the stadium, being an active listener, or cooking special meals for your father and family. Hence, let him have the best day ever!
Here are some incredible activity ideas to celebrate your father on Father’s Day: Hiking with your father and family, going on a bike ride, bringing your father to a café in a different state, going camping, having a backyard BBQ, watching movies together, going to the Zoo or spoiling him with breakfast in bed and many more. Having quality time by spending your day with your father to do these activities is also a heart-warming gift.
To be fair, dads are simple beings. They usually won’t expect much as gifts (although they are dying to receive one you know dads, they don’t really express much), but if they do, they would usually want something practical, something they can use in a long run. So, some of the best gifts you can give your dad for Father’s Day are shavers, a tie, socks, maybe a journal or delighting your day with the listed gifts that we have mentioned in the article!
If you do not have enough budget to spoil him with something lavish or elegant, you can always opt for a homemade breakfast where you cook him his favorite meal for breakfast (or just any breakfast meal in general). You can also present him with a handcrafted card or art to show your appreciation. If you’re more to the writer’s side, you can always write him a letter or a poem to show your dad how much you love him!
You don’t. Gift-giving is not an obligation you have to do in order to show your respect and love to your dad. If you don’t feel like giving him gifts, and rather do something else instead, then go ahead. The most important thing is that you spend quality time with your dad, or father figure, during this special day.
For wives and partners out there, who want to spoil your significant other on Father’s Day, you can opt to get them the things that they have been eyeing for some time. Other than gift giving, you can always spend quality time with them or bring them on a holiday with just the two of you for extra quality time.
You can wish someone a happy Father’s Day by giving him a handcrafted card with your genuine and loving wishes written in it. Other than that, you can also get him a cake with “Happy Father’s Day”, ‘’Selamat Hari Bapa’’, ‘’父亲节快乐’’, ‘’இனிய தந்தையர் தினம்’’ written on top of it and celebrate the day with the entire family.
