Wiki knows thingssurprise:

 

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Father%27s_Day

People's Republic of China[edit]

In People's Republic of China, the official Father's Day is celebrated on the third Sunday of June and is not a public holiday. This date was set according to international norms.

Prior to the People's Republic, when the Republic of China (1912-1949) governed from Nanjing, Father's Day was celebrated on August 8. This was determined by the fact that the eighth (ba) day of the eighth (ba) month makes two "eights" (八八, ba-ba), which sounds similar to the colloquial word for "daddy" (ba-ba,爸爸). It is still celebrated on this date in areas still under the control of the Republic of China, including in Taiwan.

Did you celebrate Children's Day back home? Or QingMing day?

 

There's no logical reason why they should - Father's Day isn't really an international celebration... Buy why they'd flock to Christmas, Valentines day and others is a mystery, best explained by a) money, and b) TIC.

A:Going to HK would be the best bet I reckon, especially if you were looking for a church wedding. Chinese weddings are pretty grim IMO - you go to a barren govt dept with souless officials and navigate red tape so some guy can give you a red stamp and a marriage book. You get expensive pictures taken of you both posing in places you'd never go to in everyday life that is somehow supposed to represent your wedding, then a while later it's off to a restaurant where a game show host kind of guy makes sure it's as tacky as possible while the guests eat as fast as they can so they can leave as soon as they finish eating and gave you money. Hell, I'd go to Thailand or the Philippines and get married in Paradise.   -- Stiggs
