Most dads would give anything and do anything just for their children to be happy. This is what one single dad living in Varina, Virginia tried to prove when he went all out just to ask his daughter to the Daddy-Daughter Dance.
Of course, Jason Garmon could have just told/commanded his daughter, Skylar, that she should go to the dance with him – after all, she is her dad! Who else should go with her, anyway? But he wanted to make it formal and to give her the choice, whether she truly wanted to go to the dance with him or not.
So, with he set up a table with handwritten signs asking her the big question. Together with his son Grayson, Jason led the girl to the spot while covering her eyes.
As expected, his daughter was excited about the dance “proposal” and said a big “Yes!” complete with a great big hug to him!
Jason would later post photos of the touching moment on Facebook. Quickly, the post spread like wildfire among his friends and has gone across the world with close to 421,000 shares to date! Isn’t that incredible? I wish all dads could be as sweet as Jason…
While the daddy-daughter dance is more popular during weddings in Western countries, there are a number of schools and communities that hold a separate daddy-daughter dance much like a prom. The event is often timed around Valentine’s Day but some schools also hold the event around the Christmas season.
Of course, most of the kids are expected to go to the dance with their fathers yet there are also many who couldn’t do so for various reasons; thus, most schools allow other father figures to stand in place of the child’s real/biological father.
