Parents' Day was the first Holy Day established in the Unification tradition. True Father established it on April 10, 1960. Unificationists observe Parents' Day—now designated as True Parents' Day—on the first day of the third month of the Heavenly Calendar.
The establishment of Parents' Day followed True Parents' engagement on March 27, 1960. It signified that God had finally established His first son and daughter as the True Parents of humankind. True Father later stated, "Parents' Day is the first time since God created all things and humankind that there is one balanced man, one balanced woman, balanced in love, to whom God can descend and with whom He can truly be." Following Parents' Day, True Father established Children's Day (1960), Day of All Things (1963) and God's Day (1968) as Holy Days. They were set up to celebrate the emergence of the True Family, or True Parents' family, and the foundation upon which a new world can take shape and a new history begin.
