Parents' Day

Parents’ Day is celebrated on the fourth Sunday in July.

Parents’ Day is a holiday similar to Mother’s Day or Father’s Day. It is essentially a combination of the two. While, Mother’s Day is a day to celebrate your mothers, and Father’s Day is a day to celebrate your fathers, similarly, Parents’ Day is to celebrate your parents. The holiday is celebrated on the fourth Sunday in July. Hence, the actual date of the holiday varies yearly. 

Parents’ Day was first set up by the United States of America in 1994, when President Bill Clinton signed a Congressional Resolution recognizing Parents’ Day as a federal holiday into law. The holiday was established for "recognizing, uplifting, and supporting the role of parents in the rearing of children." The bill was introduced by Republican Senator Trent Lott and was supported by members of the Unification Church which began the original celebrations for Parents’ Day.

Even though Parents’ Day was originally an American federal holiday, it has now found popularity all around the world. Today, Parents’ Day is celebrated in many countries. While, it may not have achieved the popularity of Mother’s Day or Father’s Day, it is safe to say that it is on its way.
