The Fathers Day 2018 Date keeps on fluctuating but a very little. The International Father’s day is celebrated in UK, USA as well as in India. So, what day did the father’s day actually start? All of us sure want to know the History of Father’s day. The Father’s day 2018 is not very far now and all of us sure should start with the preparations.
It is rightly said that a dad is someone who wants to catch you before you fall but instead picks you up, brushes you off and lets you try again. That is the way every father teaches his kids to live life and fight with all the obstacles. The things our fathers do for us is truly unmatchable. So let’s come back to the origin of Father’s day. Well, it dates back to many years back and the origin of it can supposedly be taken from two stories at least. The first one suggests that in the year 1910, during a mother’s day church service a person named Sonora Smart Dodd from Washington suggested that even fathers should be honored equally and in the same way just like the love of a mother is celebrated.
She did this because she had lost her mother when she was 16 and his father who was an American Civil War Veteran had taken care of her and her 5 other siblings. She went and approached the Spokane’s YMCA and asked them to declare a father’s day on June 5 because that day was her father’s birthday whom she loved so much. They proposed an idea of celebrating fathers day on every third Sunday of June instead. The official Father’s day was established in 1972 when President Nixon actually declared the fathers day as an official celebration.
The second story that talks about the Origin of Father’s day are of Grace Golden Clayton who wanted to establish fathers day in lieu of children who had lost their fathers in a mine explosion. The mishap took the lives of around 360 men of the town. She put in front the day so that the kids could have a day to honor and remember their fathers. This happened in 1908 and hence it is believed that the Father’s day was established way before Sonora Smart Dodd had put up the idea or approached the YMCA.
Contemporarily, Father’s day is celebrated in almost all the countries but on different dates in the similar month of June. 17th of June 2018 has been reserved as the father’s day in the United States of America this time. Father’s day is hence a day to recognize this love and care and thus should be celebrated with great pomp and show.
Know the best song for mothers day from here.
Let us reflect and express some gratitude to our fathers who are care for us more than they care for themselves. It is said that fathers love their daughters more than their sons which is sometimes felt true because every son is a momma’s boy and an every girl daddy’s little princess.
Now, that you know the history and origin of father’s day, it’s your duty to wish and impress your daddy on this auspicious day in the best possible way. Get going everyone and Happy fathers day to everyone out there.
