Papa was a flightless bird
Why ostriches on Father’s Day? Because male ostriches are more involved in the care and rearing of their young than many other wild animals. At night, the expectant ostrich dad sits on the eggs in the nest, his black plumage camouflaging him from predators. When the chicks hatch, papa ostrich teaches them how to forage for food and is their primary protector. Way to go, ostrich dad! We hope at least one of those baby ostriches remembers to call you today.
Father's Day is a celebration honoring fathers and celebrating fatherhood, paternal bonds, and the influence of fathers in society. In Catholic Europe, it has been celebrated on 19 March since the middle ages. This celebration was brought by the Spanish and Portuguese to Latin America, where 19 March is often still used for it, though a number of countries in Europe and the Americas have adopted the US date which is the third Sunday of June. In the US, Father's Day has been celebrated since the early twentieth century.
