Father’s Day is not a public holiday In The People’s Republic of China, and is not widely celebrated. Nevertheless, there is slowly some greater awareness of this observance since it is such an ideal opportunity for children to give fathers a treat and express their appreciation for their father’s love and hard work.

Father’s Day celebrations may take place in limited fashion, and the observance is widely kept in the Special Administrative Region of Hong Kong. It is kept on the third Sunday in June just like many other countries around the world.
In earlier decades, during World War II, China observed Father’s Day on 8 August. The eighth day of the eighth month had been chosen since the Chinese word for eight, “ba”, sounds like the Chinese word for father, “baba”, when repeated twice.
