Father’s Day- Samoan Style


Three of the most important days in Samoa revolve around the family. Mother’s Day (May), Father’s Day (August), and the biggest, White Sunday (Children’s Day) are all held on Sunday with the following Monday a national holiday. Small gifts are given and special church programs occur. Most of all it is a time to do nothing but recognize the importance of family. That is what comes first in Samoa.
