You thought celebrating mother’s day and father’s day was enough? Umm, for all the things they do for us, dedicating two days as a token of appreciation is not enough. We need more excuses to show love and appreciation to our parents. That is how parents’ day comes into existence. Parents day is celebrated on the fourth Sunday of July. So, this year, July 25th is the day dedicated to celebrating parenthood around the world.
Parents – well, what can be said about this perfect mechanism that coordinates so well by fulfilling a child’s life with fun, knowledge, wisdom and all the good traits. Mom and dad are very clear of their roles that play a huge role in a child’s development. They make thousands of sacrifices for their kids without even a frown on their faces. But, As we all grow up, we sometimes tend to forget to connect with the ones who put all their efforts to raise us to become good humans. I mean what we are today, is all because of our parents and yet we hardly make it a priority to take out time for them just like they did for us when they were the busy ones. Well, no matter if you don’t get time or don’t remember, days like parents day encourage kids to spend time with their parents and do some special activities for them. In this post, I’m sharing a few ideas that you can use to make parent’s day memorable.
Make dinner for them
One of the best ways to make someone feel special, cook dinner for them. I don’t know if there is some kind of magic in food that automatically makes someone feel special. So, it’s the two of them who you want to impress, the same idea, cook for them. Prepare a nice dinner, with one of your mom’s favourite dishes and the other for dad. Arrange well, and dine in with them. They will be more than happy. Also, get a cake delivery for the celebration.
Arrange a family picnic
Well, if it was their anniversary, I would have suggested you get them tickets to the hill station. But since it’s parent’s day, your role is important too as it’s you who needs to show love and appreciation. Hence, the idea of a family picnic is on the table. This idea can be executed in your lawn or some other spot close to nature.
Hear their stories
You know, even if you live with your parents, there are so many stories that you must have not heard to date. That’s because living with parents is a different thing than connecting with them. If you actually sit down, connect with them and lend them your ears, you will realise that they have a huge sack of stories or memories to share. These can be stories of your childhood or their childhood, how they met each other, their dreams and their sacrifices. It is always fun to hear what all they have done while single mischief they created and you will get to know what type of people they actually are.
These are some ways to celebrate parents day this year.
