Parents Day 2017 in United States of America
Everyone knows about the origin of mother’s day and father’s day but it’s hard to explain the origin of parent’s day, we know that parent’s day celebrates on the fourth Sunday of July, every year to mark a sense of thankfulness from every child to his/her parents.
Parents are people who are not only give life to us, but also imbibe in us good qualities and make us better human beings. Do we really know from where this term came in existence?
Parent’s day does not have a centuries-old history. If we really want to know the origin of the day, it was formulated in 1994, by US president Bill Clinton, in his presidential term in white house.
He realised that a mother’s day celebrated on the second Sunday of May and also a father’s day that was celebrated on the third Sunday of June every year. There was no such day which commemorated the efforts of both the parents together.
Then finally parent’s day took shape. US president signed into a law a resolution that was superbly adopted by US congress also. With the signing of the resolution, fourth day of July was realised as the day to celebrate the love of our parents together.
This has been described that parents’ day is established for uplifting and supporting the role of parents in the rearing children.
