The real question is, actually, what would dad really be happy about? It is useless to faint to buy him a perfume or another expensive gift if we know well that what really matters is the thought.

Father's Day 2022
First of all, why is it celebrated on March 19 and what are the traditions and history related to this special day? On March 19, the Church remembers St. Joseph, the putative father of Jesus, in fact the most authentic and pure symbol of the father figure, the one who welcomed the mystery of the birth of Jesus and raised him as his son. On this special day it is right to remember your father and celebrate all together with a chore for him, a dinner with his favorite dishes or by organizing a family evening watching films featuring special fathers.
This year Father's Day happens to Friday, therefore it is very likely that the father is not at home and it is not possible to organize a family outing (also due to the limitations due to the pandemic), but we can still prepare ourselves in the afternoon in order to welcome him with a gift when he returns from work and to spend an evening of pampering together.
And let's not forget that in the weekend preceding March 19th (but also the following one) in many parts of the country, events, events and activities are organized for fathers and their children and maybe we could take the opportunity to give to the whole family a trip out of town (if possible) for celebrate on the weekend.

A special recipe for dad
Finally, if the father in question is a very greedy type, we can opt for the preparation of a dessert or a special dinner. For example, we could prepare biscuits with which to "write" a message or sweet wishes, or the inevitable zeppole, the typical fritters of San Giuseppe, which are also available in other ways, such as sfinci or bignè di San Giuseppe.
The important thing is to prepare a dinner that represents a unique opportunity to be all together and to chat and celebrate.
Ideas for Father's Day
The best way to experience Father's Day is to be together, even better by treating yourself to aexperience particular and different from usual.

How to celebrate the first Father's Day
La first Father's Day, like that of the mother, it is a special moment for the whole family and certainly does not go unnoticed. How can we experience this anniversary in a special way?
- Have breakfast in bed all together: it is wonderful to cuddle yourself in the bed with your baby, but you can do more, bringing a nice basket with many delicacies to bed to start this special day in the best possible way;
- Do a little photo shoot to child and father to create, then, a picture with frame;
- A decidedly alternative way to spend this holiday is to ask the grandmother to take care of the baby for the pomeriggio and invite dad to do what he wants, a couple walk or a romantic afternoon at home.
