It literally means:
This is a classic way to wish your father a happy Father’s Day in French.
Pretty simple, just say to your father “Bonne fête des pères” or “Bonne fête papa.” or even “Joyeuse fête des pères“.
If you want to be more ceremonious, use instead the super full version “Je te souhaite une joyeuse/bonne fête des pères papa.” (I wish you a happy/good father’s day dad.)
In Quebec, “Joyeuse fête” doesn’t have the same meaning as in France, it means “Happy birthday“. While in France, to say “Happy birthday” we use “Joyeux anniversaire“.
So if your dad is from Quebec, be careful!
