Children often celebrate this special day with activities to honor their fathers, grandpa, or any father-like figure they have in their life. Let's learn about what Father's Day actually is and other details related to its celebration.

Facts About Father's Day

The US President Calvin Coolidge first proposed the idea of celebrating Father's Day officially in 1924. The president of America signed a public law that the third Sunday of June should be celebrated as Father's Day. Further, in 1972, President Richard Nixon again signed a new law to give permanent recognition to this day as national Father's Day. 

Other facts associated with Father's Day include that Father's Day is at present the fourth most popular holiday after Christmas for greeting cards.

Father's Day History

The Father's Day history dates back to 1910 in a place called Spokane, Washington. It began in the country of America by Sonora Dodd.

She was 27 years old, and she was the one who proposed the idea of Father's Day to honor her own father. She aimed to appreciate her father's effort, especially as he brought her up after her mother died while giving birth. Her father's birth month was June, so she decided to celebrate this day every year in the same month on the third Sunday. 

Father's Day is a wonderful occasion to gift greeting cards.

Father's Day Significance

When we talk of the significance of Father's Day, we mean it is a celebration of fathers' love. This Sunday special event is a crucial day in which children celebrate by honoring fathers and celebrate fatherhood to appreciate the influence of fathers in society. 

Fathers do so much for their children and family and the least we could do for them is to mark a day dedicated to them and have a special Father's Day celebration. The importance of a father figure in a kid's life is truly unmeasurable. Instead of a holiday, this is more of a day to spend time with your father and thank him for all the love and care he has showered upon you. The main significance of celebrating a special day for fathers is to remember that in kids' lives it's not just the mother who looks after them, but the father equally plays an important role. 

In short, we can say that Father's Day is all about honoring and appreciating the joys of fatherhood and the bond between a father and his child. So, celebrate Father's Day to make his day ultra-special.
