Father's Day in
Days to go:
Father's Day seeks to honor the contributions, love, and sacrifices of fathers in families and society. The observance aims to recognize and appreciate the paternal figures in our lives, including biological fathers, stepfathers, and grandfathers. It offers an opportunity for children to express gratitude and admiration towards their dads, reinforcing the bond within families and promoting paternal involvement in children's lives.
The idea for Father's Day dates back to the early 20th century, with the first celebration taking place in the United States in 1910. Sonora Smart Dodd, a woman from Washington State, initiated the day to honor her father, William Jackson Smart, a civil war veteran and single parent who raised his six children. In 1972, under President Richard Nixon, Father's Day was officially recognized as a national holiday in America, allowing the nationwide celebration of fatherhood and paternal bonds.
In the United States, Father's Day is typically observed on the third Sunday of June. Festivities often involve family gatherings, sharing meals, and engaging in recreational activities together. Children and adults alike express gratitude to their fathers through various means, including the exchange of gifts, handwritten notes, and phone or video calls. Some people also pay tribute to their late fathers by visiting their grave sites or conducting memorial services.
