Event description

Father's Day tradition in Luxembourg

Dads are celebrating in Luxembourg with Pappendag or Father's Day.

In Luxembourg, Father's Day is traditionally celebrated on the 1st Sunday in October. It's an opportunity for children to spoil their dad. Younger children will give him a present, made at school with their "Joffer".

Moms are also entitled to a gift made at school. Moms are celebrated in Luxembourg in June.

Origins of Father's Day

Father's Day was originally a Christian holiday celebrated in Europe. It can be traced back to the Middle Ages, when fathers were celebrated on March 19. This day corresponds to Saint Joseph's Day, who was the adoptive father of the infant Jesus.

Father's Day is traditionally celebrated around the world on the third Sunday in June. This is particularly the case in France, where Father's Day was instituted by a lighter manufacturer in the 1950s as a selling point.

Belgium celebrates fathers on the second Sunday in June. Germany celebrates fathers forty days after Easter, on Ascension Thursday .

Gift ideas for Dads at Pappendag
