Parents’ Day

Ever wondered what second Sunday of May and third Sunday of June have in common? Both of them are dedicated to our parents, though each one to one of them.

But then why don’t we have a combination of both and celebrate a PARENTS’ DAY. It makes more sense to me because our life is incomplete without any one of them.

I am glad that I’m not the only one who has ever thought about it and I’m proud to say that my thoughts coincide with the former President of U.S.A. Bill Clinton who declared fourth Sunday of every July as parents’ day.

Also,in South Korea, it is held on May 8th.

Nevertheless the United Nations proclaimed June 1 to be the Global Day of Parents “to appreciate all parents in all parts of the world for their selfless commitment to children and their lifelong sacrifice towards nurturing this relationship”.

Also it is interesting to  know that Dianthus Caryophyllus, commonly known as Carnations or clove pink, flowers that symbolize Parents’ Day are given to parents by children in celebrating Parents’ Day in South Korea.

I hope everyone after reading this celebrates Parents’ day at least once every year as a tribute to their parents.
