Happy Father’s Day!
As you all know, June 17th will be our loved-Father’s Day. So, prepare your phone call, or your best cuddle, to show your father how much you love him.
But what exactly is Father’s Day? At the beginning, at the middle-age period, Father’s Day was a religious feast, dedicated to St joseph, the putative father of Jesus. It was only in the early 1900’s in the USA, that the day has turned to be a non-religious celebration. The official instigator of it was Sonora Smart Dodd, who wished to have a Father’s Day to honour her father who raised alone his 6 children.
The English tradition of Father’s Day is not that old: it only dates after the second world war. There are many ways to celebrate Father’s Day around the world. In Thailand for instance, one offers a canna flower to his father, and celebrate also the king’s anniversary, by wearing yellow clothes. In Germany, Father’s Day is also men’s day, and ones take the opportunity to hang out with friends and family.
And you, how will you deal with this wonderful day?
– As wine passionate, and knowing all that wine represents, we advise you to offer him a special bottle of wine: the white wine from our cuvée l’Ambitieux from Bordeaux, château Farizeau 2014. Why? Because it is a wine which can be drunk as an appetizer, perfect to share a convivial moment with your father before lunch or dinner. Furthermore, the shiny yellow colour will remind him and you the coming summer and bring some light in your relations.
– This year, as you may all know, will take place the football world cup. Why not offering him a new English football jersey? Furthermore, next Sunday will be the day before the first match of England (England vs Tunisia). So, Invite him to share a moment with you watching the match in a pub with his new jersey: even if you and him don’t care about football, he will be touched by this attention.
– Simply share some moments with him, walking in a park, play a football match, which would remind him the memories of your childhood.
