Today is a cause for celebration not only in the UK but also in Canada and the US. Today is Father’s Day and the perfect time to honour those dads out there who make an impact in our lives. Of course, we should always appreciate our dads but on today’s special day that is set aside just for him, take some time to do something fun with your dad. A great idea is to have a barbecue, watch some telly, tell some stories, have a few drinks and end the evening by launching sky lanterns. This is especially great if you are a dad and have other generations present also. All the dads in the family can have sky lanterns set off as a way to honour them and their contribution.

Choosing the perfect Sky Lanterns for Father’s Day

You can use any type of sky lantern you want to set off in the evening. Traditional white lanterns such as the ones found at are a great choice. Or you may want to choose the more colourful sky lanterns such as the ones found at Regardless once you set them up, light the fuel cell and launch them into the night sky they will emit a warm glow that can be seen for many kilometres. Anyone who sees them will know it was set of in celebration of Father’s Day and will remember their own fathers. It’s a great tribute to dads everywhere.

Personalize the sky lanterns for even more fun

Personalizing sky lanterns before launching them is a great idea. In ancient times one way Chinese lanterns were used was a means of prayer. They thought that as the Chinese lantern drifted into the sky that it got closer to the gods’ ears, increasing the chance of it being granted. You can use this time honoured tradition to celebrate Father’s Day at home too. Use a sharpie marker and customize the sky lantern. You can write a prayer of well wishes to your father, a special memory, poem, something funny, draw a picture or even a simple special message. Another idea is to have all the dads who are in attendance write the names of their children and the best part of being a father on the sky lanterns. These can then be shared with the group as each flying lantern is released. By the time they are all soaring into the sky it will be a beautiful display.

Father’s Day is a time for celebration and sky lanterns are the perfect addition

For fathers who have smaller children it is a great time to show them how fun sky lanterns can be. Of course, children need to be supervised when using them but this can be a great tradition that lasts generations. Launching sky lanterns at the end of an evening of honouring dad can be a wonderful tradition to start. It will provide lasting memories for everyone who attends.
