Welcome to turkey lovers and country cooking month

This is the month when many people commemorate Father’s Day on Sunday June 18, by making a special effort to visit their Dad or to send him a card or gift.

But June also sees a number of lesser known occasions, according to analysis by national retailer Clintons.

Tim Fairs, a director of the card and gift chain, said: “Let’s spare a bit of time this month to celebrate the turkey, consider the importance of lightning safety and be thankful for meteors, handshakes and aesthetically-challenged dogs, on their dedicated days.”

He added: “I can’t promise that Clintons has a card for each of these occasions, but we do have blank cards that can be adapted – and, of course, for Father’s Day we have several hundred options in our stores this year.”

Here is a list of some of the more unusual celebrations planned over the next four weeks:
