On October 15, 2009, the Romanian government adopted a law that set the country’s official Father’s Day on the second Sunday of May and Mother’s Day on the first Sunday of May. The law initiative was sparked by TATA, an alliance that fights discrimination against fathers. Father’s Day is also celebrated internationally.
