Wondering What To Do On Father’s Day?

2024’s Fathers’ Day marks seven years of spending Father’s Day with the fondest memories of my father. The best memories I have of my late father are of the moment we sat and talked at length in depth. These were times he confessed to me that the best moment of his entire life, was when he first heard me cry.

Since he had focused more on his studies he had married late thus having me, his eldest daughter later in his years. The world had assumed that he was unable to have children until I arrived and he held me in his arms. We talked about this on the Father’s Day of the year 2014.

This day will forever be imprinted in my mind.

I had chosen to take my father to join my father for a drink at his favourite local pub. It was the last Father’s Day we spent together, talking. A year later he fell ill and succumbed in 2017.

Father’s Day has always brought back this nostalgic memory. This day calls for thoughts on what I would have done better in 2014, given a chance. Don’t let Father’s Day of 2024 pass without celebrating yourself as a father, or giving your father a treat of his lifetime.

Tomorrow is never promised. Here are a few tips on what to do for you or your father on Father’s Day in 2024:

  1. Go for a Live Band

Fathers love music. My own loved the Congolese Rhumba Music and he would dance the whole night in a live performance. Good beer, a great band playing in the background, a splash of beauties and eye candy for the old man, will add him life and vitality. Bring him back to his hay days before you were born, and see the old man crack with fun and pleasure.

If you are throwing yourself a moment, then you know what is best for you. Go to your favourite joint, try out a new bar, club or a live band joint of your favourite music and jiggle away. Father’s Day comes only once, you know…

Countryside towns are less populated with sunny and beautiful landscapes. My favorite Countryside town is Nyahururu. It is a small town, with historical Lodges built on the edges of Thomson Waterfalls. The waterfalls are lined with an intricate nature trail that gives this intimate interaction with nature.
