Description: This will be an in-character camping trip (role play). We'll travel to different POIs on Endor by foot, no vehicles. Patron Day is a 'Themed holiday', according to Pex's Holiday Player Events Guide. A themed holiday is when players celebrate real world holidays with a Star Wars Galaxies™ with an In-Character twist. Patron Day is not official Star Wars canon. However the aspect of Father Tree, which is used in this storyline is canon.

Patron Day celebrates fatherhood and parenting by males, and to honor and commemorate fathers and forefathers. Patron Day is celebrated on a variety of dates galaxywide, and typically involves gift-giving to fathers and family-oriented activities. In recent years, merchants have adapted to the holiday by promoting male-oriented gifts such as electronics, tools and droids. Schools and other children's programs commonly have activities to make Father's Day gifts.

Taken from SW wiki
The Father Tree was the tallest tree on the forest moon of Endor and was worshipped as a deity by the Ewoks. The tree was protected by the Grudakk, a large creature who lived in a burrow under its roots. Logray, shaman of Bright Tree Village, possessed a branch from the Father Tree that he used to call upon the spirit of the Father Tree.

History of Father's Day

Father's Day, in the United States, is a holiday (third Sunday in June) to honour fathers. Credit for originating the holiday is generally given to Sonora Smart Dodd of Spokane, Washington, whose father, a Civil War veteran, raised her and her five siblings after their mother died in childbirth. She is said to have had the idea in 1909 while listening to a sermon on Mother's Day, which at the time was becoming established as a holiday. Local religious leaders supported the idea, and the first Father's Day was celebrated on June 19, 1910, the month of the birthday of Dodd's father. In 1924 President Calvin Coolidge gave his support to the observance, and in 1966 President Lyndon B. Johnson officially proclaimed it a national holiday. Observance on the third Sunday of June was decreed by law in 1972.

Although it was originally largely a religious holiday, Father's Day has been commercialized with the sending of greeting cards and the giving of gifts. Some observe the custom of wearing a red rose to indicate that one's father is living or a white rose to indicate that he is deceased. Other males—for example, grandfathers or uncles who have assumed parenting roles—are often also honoured on the day. Some Roman Catholics have continued to observe the feast day of Saint Joseph, on March 19, as a tribute to fathers.
