Father’s Day

The bond between a father and child is like no other. A father is her daughter’s old flame and a son’s first hero. A father may be a model, a guide, the primary man in our lives that we learn to trust. Their sacrifices and contributions should be celebrated every day.

Date

In India Father’s Day is widely known every year on the third Sunday of June. This year, the big day falls on June 20. People from across the planet are going to be commemorating their fathers and everything they need to finish them.

History

The history of Father’s Day dates back to the first 20th century. A mining mishap in West Virginia, on July 5, 1908, killed many men which led to the day being celebrated for the primary time. Grace Golden, the daughter of a fanatical reverend proposed a Sunday service for all the lads who lost their lives within the accident.

Two years later, Sonora Smart Todd, the daughter of an American war veteran, William Jackson Smart, suggested that Father’s Day should be celebrated to honor the role of fathers. William, a widower, raised Sonora and her five younger brothers single-handedly and selflessly. She wanted the day to be celebrated on her father’s birthday on June 5. The day was later pushed to the third Sunday of June. Over the years, Sonora started campaigning to market Father’s Day on a national level.

Significance

Father’s Day day is widely known to acknowledge our fathers for everything they need to finish us. Father’s day also can be celebrated to honor any father figure in your life like your grandpa, your elder brother, your uncle, etc.
