IT IS that time of the year again when you start looking for a gift to spoil your dad on this special day.
While Friday and yesterday's downpour had its impact on business, the Suva Retailers Association said the response towards the week-long Father's Day sale was still overwhelming.
Association president Himmat Lodhia said though yesterday's business was slow because of the weather, "overall, we are happy with the turnouts".
Father's Day is a celebration honouring fathers and celebrating fatherhood, paternal bonds, and the influence of fathers in society.
While many families will prepare a big feast today, the Prakash family of Nakasi have a different theory of celebrating this day. Rohit Prakash, 43, a taxi driver, considers himself a lucky man because his wife and children treat everyday as father's day.
His wife Lina Prakash said they do not prepare fancy food or spoil their dad with gifts because to them, Father's Day was everyday. Yesterday, a lot of people were spotted rushing in and out of shops doing their last minute Father's Day shopping.
Kelera Muani of Tailevu said she wanted to prepare a nice lovo lunch for her dad today just to show her appreciation of all that he has done for them.
