Smile you are in San Miguel

By Jade Arroyo

Father’s Day is a celebration dedicated to fathers. Traditionally it is the day when  fatherhood and men’s influence on their sons’ and daughters’ lives is honored. Most Latin American countries celebrate Father’s Day on the third Sunday in June and this year it will be celebrated on June 19 (the same day as the Day of Los Locos).

In San Miguel there is a large community of fathers of different ages, nationalities (often different from that of their children), professions, and family structures. We visited several of them accompanied by their offspring.
Sanmiguelenses celebrate fathers in some schools, but usually it is a day to spend with family. Like many traditions, Father’s Day is derived from Catholicism, from the example of man and the life of St. Joseph, the father of Jesus.

At Attentión we believe that Father’s Day is much more than an annual celebration or an excuse to buy a gift, but rather it is a tribute to the strong and loving men raising future generations. Congratulations to all!
