Tomorrow we celebrate Daughter’s Day in our family. We decided to create this holiday a few years ago after our daughter asked when her special day was, similar to Mother’s Day and Father’s Day. I’m glad she was thinking about equality at such an early age!
I’ve since seen that there in fact exists other Daughter’s Days. Our holiday is somewhat similar in spirit to those, but we do not celebrate on the same day each year (those who know us will not find that as a surprise, as we also celebrate Father’s Day, Mother’s Day and Christmas on alternate days).
It’s a day for us to celebrate our daughter as an equal and integral part of our family! She gets to make all the plans for the day, just like we do on Mother’s Day and Father’s Day.
I encourage other families to create their own Daughter’s Day and Son’s Day. Personally, I think that each child should have their own day. So, if you have two daughters, there should be two separate Daughter’s Day holidays (much how in many families the mother and father have their own day for themselves; speaking of which, I would think that in a family with two moms or two dads, there should be two Mother’s Days or Father’s Days).
