Father’s Day: Greek Australians share the best advice from their dad or pappou




From The Greek Herald with love – Happy Father’s Day to all our special dad’s and pappou’s! While every day is the perfect time to treasure your dad or pappou and show them how much they mean to you, today is just that extra bit special.

To mark the occasion, we asked members of the Greek Australian community to share with us the best advice they’ve received from their dads and pappous.

Sofia Hobson:

As Father’s Day approaches on the first Sunday of Spring, I’m sure there are many of us who no longer have our dad present physically in our lives but have a collection of memories that we treasure. I remember one of my favourite things to do when I was a little girl was to watch my dad shaving and wait for him to lean down and plop a little blob of shaving cream on my face.

It’s the little moments in our lives that become a gift we treasure. I miss you dad. Here’s cheers to all the fathers out there who love and have loved and supported their children. That love and support sustains us throughout our whole life, whether we are young or old, or we live near or far, or if they are not with us anymore. We carry our dads in our hearts.

Leah Pallaris:

My father Nick gave me the best advice that came from Aesop’s Fables ‘The man, the boy and the donkey’ – You cannot please everyone, so don’t try.

Evon Soulos:

The best advice my dad, Charles Soulos, gave me was – Never give up!
