Daughter’s Day 2020: When is Daughter’s day celebrated in India

While different parts of the world celebrate it on different dates, in India it is always celebrated on the 4th Sunday of September. This year the day will fall on September 27.

Every year Daughters day is celebrated all across the globe to cherish and appreciate daughters. A daughter not only brings joy to the whole family but also keeps everyone happy with just their presence. While different parts of the world celebrate it on different dates, in India it is always celebrated on the 4th Sunday of September. This year the day will fall on September 27.

The day holds a historic significance to remind each and every one to treat their sons and daughters alike. The day is especially dedicated to the ‘girl child’ to address the issue and stop identifying women as an inferior gender.

 Daughter’s day is all about empowering girls. In India, where many people are still obsessed with a boy child, this day will continue to remind them that girls are no less. Daughters are special and there is no denying the fact that they help in keeping the family together. 

Daughters’ Day came to be celebrated to do away with the stigma attached to having a girl child instead of a boy; to raise awareness against the discrimination of girls and promote equality between genders.

On this day, parents and other family members make girl children in the family feel special by giving those gifts, treating them with good food or spending quality time with them. Instead of curbing their desires, encourage them to pursue their dreams and boost their confidence.

US, UK, Canada and Germany are among the other countries that will celebrate Daughters’ Day on September 27. In some countries, this day is also observed on September 25 while other countries celebrate the day on October 1. The actual date on which Daughters’ Day began to be celebrated, however, is not known. World Daughters’ Day is celebrated on September 28.
