Father’s Day is one of the most celebrated days of the year, where we dedicate time to honor our fathers. This day recognizes the influence of men on their children. There are many father’s day activities you can enjoy to make the most of this special day. Here in this article we will provide you with some great ideas for fathers day, but first, let’s dive into its history.
History of Father´s Day
The idea of dedicating a day for our dads first arose in the United States. In 1910 a woman named Sonora Smart Dodd wanted to pay tribute to her father who she deeply loved. He raised her and her five siblings alone on a farm in the state of Washington.
Sonora came up with the idea while listening to a sermon at church on Mother’s Day. She proposed the date for the 5th of June, which was her father’s birthday. In 1924 president Calvin Coolidge released an official statement supporting the idea of establishing a national father’s day.
So what day is father’s day? US president Lyndon Johnson released a statement in 1966 regarding the official date of father´s day. The date was set as the third Sunday in June. The celebration of father´s day on this date gained followers and spread throughout the world. Although each country has their own culture and traditions, many countries celebrate father´s day on the third Sunday in June. The most important factor is that we have a day to honor our dads and let them know how important they are.
