Father’s Day celebrates and honours the men who have embraced the essential role of fatherhood. On this day, we also thank fathers and father figures (uncles, grandfathers) for the sacrifices they make, for embracing the responsibility of nurturing and raising children, and for devotion to their family.
Father’s Day is celebrated annually on the third Sunday in June in the United States, United Kingdom, Canada, India, and a number of other countries around the world. In 2022, Father’s Day will be celebrated on Sunday, June 19.
History of Father's Day
The first time Father’s Day was celebrated was on the third Sunday of June 1910 and has ended up becoming a tradition. Sonora Smart Dodd has the honour of being the founder of this day. She was the daughter of a civil war veteran single father, who raised her, and her 5 siblings. She came up with the idea of Father’s Day after listening to a sermon on Mother’s Day, which was quickly gaining popularity as a national holiday. Although the day has been celebrated as Saint Joseph Day since the Middle Ages in European countries following Catholicism, it became an international holiday in 1972 after Mother’s Day was declared a holiday.
