Father’s Day is much more than just a way of card shops making their money. It’s about acknowledging the contribution your father has made to your family. The celebration dates back to the early 1900s when Sonara Dodd, a doting daughter from Spokane, Washington thought it was only right that if we celebrate Mother’s Day there should also be a day to honour our fathers. Working hard to make the celebration of Father’s Day a reality, after being recognised by President Calvin Coolidge in 1924 the festival became a national occasion in America held on the third Sunday of June, and soon spread across the globe.
Father’s Day gives children and adults alike the opportunity to show their dads how much they mean to them. The continuous care and protection provided by fathers can be blessed on this special day.
