Parents' Day is established for "Recognizing, Uplifting, and Supporting the role of Parents in the rearing of children". It is celebrated on the fourth Sunday of July, every year. In the year 2012, this day be falls on the July 22.
Parents' Day was introduced in the United States of America by President Bill Clinton, in the year 1994. This was done to prevent gender biased differentiation by having Fathers' day and Mothers' day as two separate days of the year.
Parents' Day is a popular time for people to send cards and gifts, including flowers, cakes and food hampers, to those who play an important role as a positive parental figure in their lives. It is also a time for families to come together for lunches or dinners.
Special tributes to parental figures who are seen as role models are made through local announcements, at church services, or at local community events. Parents' Day proclamations and rallies have been held in recent times and involved organizations such as the United Civil Rights Councils of America.
Parents' Day is celebrated on different days throughout the world, yet it continues to be celebrated because of its universal appeal.
