Originally, Father’s Day began as an intentional counterpart to Mother’s Day. It was first celebrated in the US, but it soon spread from there to other parts of the world. But many countries selected their own dates for Father’s Day instead of using the June date of the American holiday. Thus, Tokelau and nearby Samoa put the holiday in mid-August.

In Tokelau, some will attend a special church service on or near to the date of Father’s Day. The sermon may focus on things like the gift and responsibilities of fatherhood, Biblical examples of good fathers, or the Fatherhood of God. At home, families will give cards, small gifts, and words of encouragement to Dad, and they may treat him to a special meal at home or in a restaurant.
