Although not as popular as Mother’s Day, Father’s Day is another yearly celebration which is usually honoured on the third Sunday of June. This is a celebration of fathers and male parenting and it can be seen as a complement to Mother’s Day.
Traditionally, the family model consisted of the father as the breadwinner and the mother as the housewife and the one who raised the children. This is no longer the case. Nowadays both parents are involved in sharing responsibilities where it comes to raising the family, working and taking care of the house. Although the father is considered to spend less time with their children, studies shows that the father’s paternal love and closeness plays a significant role with positive child outcomes. Therefore this celebration, Father’s Day, is a moment where we should reflect and acknowledge the effort and love our fathers share with us.
Celebrate Father’s Day in Gozo
One interesting article which in some way is related to fatherhood and Gozo was published last month on The Telegraph with the name GOZO: the ideal active summer holiday for a single dad of two. Father of two daughters recounts the good times he spent during his holiday in Gozo. Mentioning Gozo’s similarities with the United Kingdom, he describes Gozo as ‘an island of mystery’. Eight mile-long Gozo is easy to travel, with nowhere is more than half an hour to arrive at your destination. Snorkeling, climbing, eco-tourism, and diving are few of many activities which can be found in Gozo. This article concludes saying that Gozo is a perfect choice for a family activity holiday.
Men need to feel appreciated for all the effort, energy and sacrifices he does for his family. And sometimes the best gift for a busy father is spending some quality time with his loved ones.
