    This hot button issue is something that gets addressed every year, and I'm curious to see how you guys feel about it.

     

    Do you celebrate Father's Day or Mother's Day for your Caregiver/partner? Do you have a separate day where you celebrate your Caregiver, or do you just not celebrate with your partner at all? I want to remind everyone to try to be respectful in their answers -- While some folks might be not be comfortable sharing a holiday themed towards parents with their Caregivers, others might use it as a way to cope with their own absent parents.

     

    For example, my girlfriend and I are putting together a 'Daddy Day' for our Caregiver on Father's Day because we both don't have fathers anymore. It's a way for us to give credit and recognition to those people in our lives who have that guiding, protecting role and take care of us the way a parent should instead of dwelling on our deceased or neglectful birth-guardians. However, in the past, we've created an entirely new day in July just for Caregivers to celebrate that didn't fall on either holiday! The possibilities are endless.

     

    So, do you celebrate Father's or Mother's Day with your Caregiver? If so, what do you do? If not, do you have another day to celebrate?

     

    Share your traditions with me!

    I totally understand why this is a sensitive subject for some people, as explained in this post, and I fully respect them wanting to keep it separate. (There's a topic about alternative names and ways of celebrating existing holidays such as Valentine's and Father's Day.) That said, I don't currently have a daddy but if I did, I would want to celebrate that day with him, because like you mentioned, I have a neglectful birth-guardian.

    I can understand some people being uncomfortable, but I think it's a great idea! ...and that's coming from a father IRL who would like to keep those areas of his life separate and compartmentalized. Like anything else, if it's not for you that's fine; move on, no need to judge.

    I celebrate Daddy Day with my Daddy the day before Father's Day. Then we spent Father's Day with our 4 children. It works perfectly for us! This year I got him a book on shibari and made him a piece of pottery.

    Me and my Daddy have only been together for about 8 months so this will be our first father's day and we haven't really talked too much about it but I want to do something special for him the day before father's day I really like the idea of Daddy's day so considering we are long distance I have made him a surprise picture along with smaller "passes" like a day off or a day of endless pictures (I don't send many and it is one of the things that annoys him) I think this is a great way to show how much you appreciate your Daddy mine always tells me he likes having reassurance that what he does is working for me and worth the time and effort and this day should help a lot with that

    I checked out the other posts that were linked above, and I have to say that I absolutely love the idea of having a 'Princess Day' instead of Valentine's Day to counter-balance Caregiver's Day!

     

    As I am a polyamorous Little and my Caregiver is also the Caregiver to other Littles/Pets, we all got together and made Him a sort of Caregiver's Guidebook! And my girlfriend and I (who live with Him) are surprising Him with homemade breakfast in bed, then a movie and His favorite restaurant for dinner! We also got Him some cards and gifts.

     

    Essentially, we want Him to show Him what it feels like when He does all those wonderful things for us every day!
