What is Father's Day?
Father's Day is the time of year to celebrate our feelings and our love towards our fathers and to recognize their place in the home and society. Father's Day always falls on the third Sunday in the month of June, and therefore the date will change each year.
On which date will Father's Day take place in 2013?
In South Africa, Father's Day in 2013 will be celebrated on June the 16th.
Where does the Father's day tradition originate from?
The idea of having a specific day in order to honor fathers around the world was said to have been created by Sonora Louise Smart Dodd.
Sonora grew up in Spokane, Washington State and after having listened to a sermon on Mother's Day one Sunday morning in the year 1909 at the young age of 27, he felt that there was also a need for a Father's Day, a day when fathers; could also be honored and appreciated, just like mothers on Mother’s Day.
So, Sonora began to campaign for an official day to be set aside for fathers and over time she gained tremendous support from various organizations and US Presidents. Eventually the first Father's Day was celebrated on June 19th 1910 in Spokane, Washington State. Sonora had stated that she wanted the date to be set on her father's birthday ,5th June, although this did not happen in the end.
How is Fathers Day in South Africa celebrated?
In South Africa, Fathers Day is celebrated by spending time with the family, going out for meals, going fishing, giving of gifts and generally just doing something nice for the father of the family.

A father and his son were at the zoo. Whilst looking at the tigers the father began telling his son how dangerous they were. Suddenly his son went silent and then said: "Daddy, if the tigers escaped and ate you up…"
"Yes son?" The father replied trying to console his little boy.

Mothers day in South Africa is fast approaching, so it’s time to start thinking about Mothers day cards, flowers, and gifts.
What are the origins of Mothers day?
Mothers day is said to have its roots in pagan celebrations of the earth’s returning fertility, while the early Christians merged the pagan spring rites honoring the earth-mother with their theology surrounding the virgin Mary. Yet the modern observance of Mothers day has nothing to do with either of these. In Boston, USA in the 1870s, a feminist and activist named Julia Ward Howe championed the celebration of an annual ‘Mothers day’ dedicated to the pursuit of peace, but her initiative died out after about ten years. The private ‘Mothers day’ celebration held in 1907 by Anna Jarvis in West Virginia, USA, to honour her mother was more popular. The idea gained momentum and in 1912 a Mothers day International Association was formed to encourage other countries to adopt this holiday, and in 1914, the then-president of the USA Woodrow Wilson enshrined it in as an official holiday.
When is Mothers day 2013?
Different countries celebrate Mothers day on different dates. In South Africa, Mothers day 2013 falls on Sunday, May 12th. Most countries mark it in the months of March, April or May, but in Costa Rica and Thailand for example it is held in August, while Russia celebrates the day in November. Many catholic countries connect Mothers day to existing celebrations surrounding the virgin Mary, such as Panama, where it is held on the feast-day of the Immaculate Conception. Hindus have a centuries-old tradition of celebrating ‘Mata Tirtha Aunshi’ or ‘Mother Pilgrimage Fortnight’ on the new moon in the month of April/May.
How is mothers day celebrated?
Today, Mothers day is celebrated around the world, although different countries have adapted it to suit their own culture. In ex-communist countries, the day was transformed into International Women’s Day and marked with processions and presentations to encourage women’s contribution to their state. In the 1920s, Germany introduced Mothers day as a propaganda tool to increase the birth rate, while in Catholic countries, the day is celebrated by prayer services revering the virgin Mary. In Bangladesh, the government marks the day with discussion programs and cultural events. In most Western countries, Mothers day is a day to celebrate the private mother relationship, through private gifts, cards and events. Most people take their mother out to a restaurant or a show, buy her jewelry, clothes, flowers, chocolates and the likes.
Mothers day gifts and presents for Mothers day
In many countries it is traditional to treat mothers and wives with Mothers day gifts. Sending Mothers day cards and flowers are all traditional ways to mark the day, while Mothers day poems are also popular. Helping your children to give their mother breakfast in bed is a much-appreciated touch, and you’ll find that most restaurants have special menus for Mothers day meals.

Some ideas for a great Mothers day gifts
What if you want to give a Mothers day present which is a little different? Here are some ideas of Mothers day gifts and ideas to consider – and some to avoid:
Recommended mothers day gifts:
- A Mothers day poem that you yourself made is always special and if you insert your mothers name in it or put the poem on a nicely decorated page or add a family picture to the background then it makes it even more special.
- Give your time. If it’s your own mother you want to treat, spend some one-on-one time with her. If it’s the mother of your children, offer to take care of them for a day so that she can spend it doing something for herself and through in a spa treatment of some sort like a manicure, pedicure or massage (see where best to find these here below)

Tips for getting the right gift and less recommended Mothers day gifts:
- Surprises are lovely, but only when it’s the right kind of surprise. “Hi Honey, I bought two tickets to the opera for you and my mother” won’t go down well…
- Make sure that the gift is really for her and not for you. “Hi Honey, I got you this amazing new frying pan so that you can make those eggs that I love…” – In this case, we hope you can run faster than a flying frying pan…
- Try pay attention to what she needs. If you are lucky, your wife/mother will probably drop a few hints before the “big” day arrives.
- Leave enough time for deliveries to arrive. Things ordered over the Internet can sometimes take up to 2 weeks – especially with the SA postal service…
Mothers day is a beautiful opportunity to show how much we all appreciate our mothers. Whether your tradition is to give a Mothers day card, Mothers day gift, or to celebrate the religious or cultural ideal of a mother, remember to show love to your mother all year round and not just on Mothers Day.
But we can't end this post without one or two Mothers day jokes:
1. A police recruit was asked during the exam, 'What would you do if you had to arrest your own mother?' He answered, 'Call for backup.'
2. Johhny: Why is a computer so smart? // Mom: Because it listens to its motherboard.
