The Day of the Father is always very special, but especially when the children are small . It is in these years when little celebrations are most enjoyed that end up becoming a special moment between parents and children. However, there are times when children are too young for celebrations of this type.
We are referring to the first years of the child’s life, when he is still a baby and when he does not have proof of what a celebration like this is . It will not be after three or four years that he knows what Father’s Day consists of and he will be able to take part in the celebration like everyone else.
However, any self-respecting new dad wants to celebrate his day from the moment he is born . Although it is only a few days or weeks old, some type of celebration is usually held to coincide with Father’s Day, which in the case of Spain is celebrated on March 19 .
THE ROLE OF MOTHERS IN THE EARLY YEARS
The usual thing is that, since the child does not have proof of the celebration itself, it is other members of the family, especially the mothers, who ‘take’ their place in the early years . They will be the main ones in charge of the celebration, in which the first-time father himself is probably also involved.
WHEN THE CHILDREN ARE YOUNG, THE CELEBRATIONS ARE EVEN MORE SPECIAL
The usual thing is to spend a good part of the day, as long as work or other commitments allow it, as a family . A meal in a restaurant, a walk, an afternoon of games, … When you are a new father and your child is only a few months old, these are usually the best plans to celebrate Father’s Day.
They do not differ too much from any other day that is free, because after all the essence of Father’s Day is that: that father and son share the day . What is sought is that both have a good time having fun and escape, whenever possible, from the daily routine.
In the case of Spain, as we mentioned before, Father’s Day is celebrated on March 19 . This day was chosen because it is when the name day of Saint Joseph, the father of Jesus Christ, is celebrated. In certain autonomous communities this day is a holiday, so there are more possibilities for a new father to spend the day with his son. You can even stretch the celebration and make it not only a holiday, but linked to a weekend can lead to several days of celebration, which can be used to take a trip, either tourist or to visit other family members. .
GIFTS FOR A NEW PARENT
Taking into account that we are talking about celebrating Father’s Day when the children are only a few years old, rather months, it cannot be expected that they have prepared any kind of gift for the father . That doesn’t mean that a new parent can’t be surprised with gifts. As we said, here it will be other relatives, especially the mother of the child, who will have to take care of it.
When the child is so young that he cannot give gifts, there are usually gifts of two types: material and sentimental . The former have no greater difficulty than going to the store and buying something they might like. The latter are much more special and will serve as a memory of these first months of the children’s lives.
THE PURPOSE OF THIS PARTY IS THAT FATHER AND SON SPEND SOME TIME TOGETHER
FAMOUS PARENTS CELEBRATING THEIR DAY
The famous celebrate Father’s Day on like the rest of us . Sometimes their celebrations are similar to those of any of us. In recent years we have been able to find out how they celebrate this day because they themselves tell us about it through their social networks. Some may spend that day in the company of their parents, but others are separated by several kilometers and take advantage of social networks to send them congratulatory messages.
There is no famous celebrity who does not congratulate his father on such an important day as this and who does not tell what his children have given him or what plans they have for that day . Last year David Bustamante uploaded the personalized mug that his daughter Daniella had made for him . Paula Echevarría also used a social network to congratulate her father and also the father of her daughter.
Gerard Piqué received last year via Twitter the congratulations of his partner Shakira who in his own name and his son Milan published a photo of the happy family.
There are those who choose this day to dust the childhood photo albums and show some of the snapshots in which they appear with their father. This is how we have known the young years of Edurne , Thalía or Elsa Anka, who accompanied the image with some loving words addressed to their parents.
