How To Celebrate Father’s Day During a Global Pandemic

how to celebrate Father's Day during a pandemic

Father’s Day will be celebrated differently this year for many Australians, as face to face contact with dad to celebrate won’t be possible.

However, though these times are uncertain with a future hard to predict during a global pandemic, there are still ways to celebrate Father’s Day if you’re either unable to have contact due to self-isolation, or if your dad lives overseas or in a state with closed borders.

It is six months since the initial lockdown period in Sydney, and many states are still enforcing strict social distancing conditions.

My dad lives a long long away, in a town called Los Cristianos on the sunny island of Tenerife in the Canary Islands off the coast of Morocco, so Father’s Day with dad was already out for me, as it’s a bit of a hike (to say the least) in regular times to get from Australia to the Canary Islands in regular times.

But for many, with Fathers in Australia, the increased tensions of border lockdowns, social distancing and self-isolation policies, virtual celebrations on Zoom with dad and the family will be the only option for Father’s Day.
