Default Happy Fathers' Day

Is it celebrated today in Spain and in the rest of the EU?

Happy Fathers' Day to all the fathers out there.

Likewise. As I found out today, nothing says "I love you" like a misspelt text.

It is not Fathers' Day in Germany but it is in Chile (not exactly the EU though)

Thank you ValenciaSon for your kind wishes, I won't be holding my breath waiting for any form of communication from my two brats.

I'm waiting for grandfather's day to be invented, maybe I'll hear from them when they realise there might be something in it for them when I pop my clogs.*


*To pop clogs = (argot) morirse.

El 28 de agosto ha sido instituido en México como el Día del Abuelo y en 2007, El Papa Juan Pablo II convocó a celebrar el “Día de los Abuelos” el 26 de julio, fecha en que el santoral católico festeja a Santa Ana y San Joaquín, padres de María y abuelos de Jesús.

I got a big chocolate medal which was eaten for me and a charmingly painted (grotesquely actually) mug to the 'BEST DAD IN THE WORLD' -which of course I am.
Also got a bit of a result with The Raconteurs CD 'Consolers of the Lonely' -did quite well this year!

Are you saying I need to move to Mexico before I hear from anyone?
