National Daughters Day is celebrated every year on September 25th. This holiday is filled with care, tenderness, and care for daughters. Of course, parents don’t need a special day of the year to tell their daughter they love them, but it’s always nice to have an extra reason to express your feelings and show how much we love a child.
Initially, the idea of National Daughters Day appeared in India. This holiday has significantly changed the established way of life and traditions. For a long time in India, women who gave birth to girls were punished, but it is time to change this unfair state of affairs. In many countries, the birth of daughters is celebrated. Another mission of the holiday is to recognize the rights of women on an equal basis with men in political and public spheres.
- Until 1920, women did not have the right to vote, and until 1960 they were forced to stay at home and run the household, while the men worked.
- Many ‘star’ mothers passed on their genes to their daughters. For example, Judy Garland passed on her talent to her daughter Liza Minnelli, and Paul and Linda McCartney gave us the world-famous fashion designer Stella McCartney.
- Quite often, girls have to take on royal duties, as happened with Elizabeth II, when, after the death of her father, she became queen.
How to take part
Spend this day with your daughter and organize a party or a picnic for her. Watch movies about daughters, or read books and poems. Make a gift for your beloved girl – go shopping together or make something with your own hands. Fulfill your daughter’s desire – listen to what she wants and try to make it a reality.
