Ds2 birthday is on Father's Day this year. He's in reception at school so first proper party with friends. I think we should have his party the day before on the Saturday but dh thinks that we should have it on his birthday. Wwyd and would you/dh/dp not go to a party on Father's Day because you want to spend it together.
It wouldn't worry me, we'd definitely go to the party, but neither my DH, my family or his family are bothered about Father's day, so that's why. However, I guess some people take it a lot more seriously.
A 4yo party is only a couple of hours out of the day, so I don't think many people would have an issue with it. Maybe make it mid afternoon so people can have a nice lunch together if thats what they want.
Thanks for replies. I think we will go for the Saturday, were not really into Father's Day but I think some people are. If it was Mother's Day I would definitely do it the day before, I guess Father's Day should be no different
we are having DT birthday party on fathers day, all our extended family will be there as we would have got together anyway, and some friends as well. we gave lots of notice and kept it quite informal. the only person to complain was dh but as he is having two birthday parties in may I told him to man up
