Father’s day history:
The idea of Father’s Day — a special day in honour of fathers and a celebration of fatherhood was introduced first in the United States. A woman named Sonora Smart Dodd got inspiration from the American Mother’s Day celebrations to plan a day to honour fathers.
In the US, the celebration of Father’s Day is over a 100-years-old and it is believed that the occasion is being celebrated since 1910. The celebrations inspired many countries including the United Kingdom and thus began the worldwide custom of Father’s Day which is now celebrated with cards, gifts and memorable day outs.
Father’s Day is considered extremely important as it is a sentiment that helps in strengthening the child-father relationship and also helps in the emotional development of a child. It is a way to acknowledge the contribution of fathers to individual families and to societies at large. The observance of Father’s Day provides children with an opportunity to express love and respect for their fathers.
