About Father's Day
Date When Celebrated: Father's Day is held on the third Sunday in June
A day to honor Dad. NO. Rather, it is a day to enjoy time with Dad and appreciate all he does for you. What Dad really wants is healthy, happy and successful kids. And, he wants you to spend a few moments with him on Father’s Day. Today’s life style is busy for both dads and kids. So, a little time with dad on Father’s Day is just what he wants.
A Father is more than the biological paternal source of our being. It is the person who cares and provides for us. It is the man who helps to set the standards, the family values and the example. So, add to this group, step fathers and other men who willingly and eagerly accept and cherish the role. Whether biological, adopted or informally, if they are the father figure to you, give him some recognition today and don’t hesitate to call him “Dad”.
Remember all those famous quotes and sayings dad had when you were growing up? See Dadism’s
“Father’s Day is when you get that lethal combination of alcohol and power tools.” – – David Letterman
“A Father is someone who walks in front of you when you need footsteps to follow, behind you when you need encouragement, and beside you when you need a friend.” – – R. Duvall
History and Origin of Father's Day
The first Father’s Day modern-day celebration was in Spokane, WA. on May 18, 1910. But, this wasn’t the first time dad got a card. About 4,00 years ago, a Babylonian boy carved a Father’s Day card out of clay.
