    1. Holy cow! (⊙o⊙)
      Thank you for the research. I will from now on give my father extra hugs on these days ;-)
      (Also, it would make a great excuse if you ever forgot the father's day of your own culture: "Ah, but see, this year, I wanted to shake things up and give you a Kiwi father's day!" ☜(゚ヮ゚☜))
