Global Day of Parents is observed on June 1 every year to recognize the important role parents play in the lives of their children.

This special day provides an opportunity to appreciate all parents for their "selfless commitment to children and their lifelong sacrifice towards nurturing this relationship, according to the United Nations.

The day also aims to make people around the world realize the significance of family bonds and the sense of obligation of adult children towards their elderly parents.

The world began celebrating the day after the United Nations General Assembly proclaimed June 1 as the Global Day of Parents in 2012.

People celebrate this day by giving their parents gifts or planning to watch movies together.

The General Assembly adopted a number of resolutions and proclaimed the International Year of the Family and the International Day of Families.
