Celebrating Father’s Day The ‘New-Normal’ Way

If we’re not on lockdown and it’s safe to go outside, how would you celebrate Father’s Day? Perhaps have dinner in his favourite restaurant, tickets to any ball games, or visit a place he hasn’t gone before. However, this year will be different due to the pandemic. While other states have already lifted their lockdowns, many establishments still can’t operate, it’ll be harder to stick to our typical tradition. Still, our first loves deserve to be celebrated in a big way but in a ‘new normal’ way!

Now you’ve come to the right place because we will be giving you 5 ideas on how you can celebrate Father’s Day during this quarantined time.
