Son and Daughter Day

August 11 is Son and Daughter Day, a day for parents to show their love and appreciation for their children.

Family together in the countryside.

While the origins of this unofficial holiday are a mystery, it is clear that the anonymous creators of Son and Daughter Day wanted parents to acknowledge the joy their children bring into their lives.

The bond between parents and their sons and daughters is a very special one. It endures age and distance. No matter how old a person gets, their parents still see him or her as a child - someone to protect and to shower love on. So, take this day to tell your sons and daughters how much they mean to you and that you respect them and love them.

How to Celebrate?

  • If you have young kids, take them on a fun outing to let them know you care about them.
  • Give your kids a big hug in the morning and tell them how much you love them.
  • Make them a special meal and let them eat treats reserved for special days.
  • Don’t have kids? Shower your affection on your nieces or nephews if you have any. If you don’t, what about making it a special day for your pet? After all, they are like your kids, no?

Did You Know...

...that the concept of childhood as a phase in life where children need the protection and nurturing of their parents and other adults came about in the 16th century? Before this, children were seen as miniature and incomplete version of adults.






The China National Tourism Administration has created tips for its citizens when traveling abroad, including:

• Don’t steal life vests from airplanes to give as gifts.

• Don’t leave footprints on the toilet.

• Don’t dry your underwear on lampshades.




Me: I have a Roundup Multi Purpose Sprayer that is defective.

Customer Rep: Ma’am, we’ll need the exact name of the item. Do you have the box?

Me: No, but it’s the Roundup Multi Purpose Sprayer.

Customer Rep: Ma’am, we’ll need the box so we can have the exact name of the product.

Me: Hold on. I’ll run out to my garage and get the box. [Long pause ... ] 
OK ... [huff ... puff] I have it. It says ... Roundup Multi Purpose Sprayer.

Customer Rep: Thank you for that information, ma’am.




My friend sat down with a new client at her gym to review her application.

For the question "To what do you attribute your fitness issues?" the woman wrote "Horrendous eating habits."

"What makes you say that?" my friend asked.

The woman replied, "I can't spell atrocious."  




When a family friend passed away, my granddaughter took her three-year-old son to visit the widow.

As they approached the front door, she whispered to the boy, “Make sure to tell her how sorry you are.”

He whispered back, “Why? I didn’t kill him.”

The China National Tourism Bureau advice recalled events during my thirteen months in Korea.  But that was long ago.
