Father’s day    has its origins in the Holy Roman Empire. From a purely religious holiday, Father’s Day has taken on new value and meaning over the years. Until 1977 this feast was part of the calendar of civil holidays. Father’s Day is celebrated in Italy on March 19th, purely for religious reasons linked to the cult of Saint Joseph. To make this day memorable, the famous zeppole di San Giuseppe are prepared in Southern Italy. They  are slightly flattened beignets. The day of this globalized anniversary is not the same in  all countries. In France, in the United Kingdom and in the United States, Father’s day is celebrated on the third Sunday of June. In Countries like Sweden, Denmark and Finland it is celebrated on the second Sunday of November.
