How is Father's Day celebrated in the UK?

Father's Day isn't as big an occasion in the UK as it is in other countries like the US.

It's typically celebrated with a card, a present and maybe a meal out for the whole family.

However, it's not necessary to celebrate the day and some families often opt out of celebrating Mother and Father's Day.
