Mother’s vs. Father’s Day

In May, we celebrated Mother’s day.  On June 16, it will be Father’s day celebration. 
I just don’t understand these kinds of celebrations.  Why not just have one BIG celebration and call it Parent’s day.  But of course, because of the nuclear family, there could be just one parent.  That could be a Mom or a Dad since there are so many single parents today. 
Also, parenthood could mean Mom and Mom or Dad and Dad.  It’s not so simple anymore. 
Actually, I am a bit perturbed about this.  
There is no Auntie Day.  None!  And that is just not fair at all. 
When it come to advertisements, paying attention to these pictures, they don’t make sense to me.

Mother’s Day Ad

For Mothers – “I wouldn’t be me if you hadn’t been you.  Thanks, Mom.”  Mothers carry the eggs; Fathers carry the sperm.  Doesn’t it take millions of sperms in order for me to become me?  How many sperms fought and died in the process in order to form me?

For Fathers – “This Father’s Day, get Dad brewing.”  I think this is how men became alcoholics.  This ad is a sobering truth. 
To all Fathers, have a fun-filled day.   Happy Father’s Day.

And this is my one and only picture of my Father.

  1. The one day I get to eat steak and nobody mentions “Blood Pressure” or “Cholesterol” I hope nobody messes with that :>)
    Sometimes people even help with the dishes…sometimes.

Please share your reflection. Thank you.
