Campaign for Universal Father's Day!
The dads in Belgium and Holland don't seem to want to celebrate Father's Day on the same day. Being difficult, eh? As usual...
And, I just can't seem to get used to it. My parents live in Belgium, I live in Holland. We know that Mother's Day and Father's Day are celebrated on different dates in these two countries...somewhere along the way we stopped trying to get it right.
Just when I wanted to get it right...like this morning...editing a new edition of northbound's newsletter about...Father's Day...I got it ALL wrong. Again!
Well, I got it wrong for all my Dutch followers. Luckily I have a lot of followers in Belgium too, so for them...perfect timing. Get your Father's Day present @ northbound store. Have a look at the newsletter here! Or follow us on Facebook!
Some 'nice to know' facts about Father's Day...Luxemburg celebrates it on the 3rd of October...
And our Nordic neighbors on the second Sunday of November...except Denmark...they celebrate Father's Day TODAY!!
So, HAPPY FATHER'S DAY TO DENMARK!!
