Father’s Day (Ziua Tatălui) is a special day for fathers and father figures in Romania on the second Sunday of May. This observance follows Mother’s Day on the first Sunday of May.
What do people do?
Many fathers and father figures are given cards and gifts on Father’s Day (also spelled as Fathers’ Day). Some families prepare special breakfasts, lunches or dinners for their fathers. Children also prepare songs and poems for their fathers.
Father’s Day is an observance and not a public holiday in Romania.
On October 15, 2009, the Romanian government adopted a law that set the country’s official Mother’s Day on the first Sunday of May and that Father’s Day would fall on the second Sunday of May. The law initiative was sparked by TATA, an alliance that fights discrimination against fathers. Father’s Day is also celebrated internationally.
Cards and gifts symbolize one’s appreciation for fathers and father figures on Father’s Day.
