Did you know the first Father’s Day in the U.S. was celebrated on June 19, 1910, in the state of Washington? Or that it wasn’t until 1972 that President Woodrow Wilson made Mother’s Day a national holiday? Once that happened, the day honoring fathers also became a national holiday in the United States. Father’s Day 2021 occurs on Sunday, June 20.
Happy Father’s Day!
What Is the true meaning behind Father’s Day?
Father’s Day is not about the one day out of the year we hang out with the men who are our biological or adopted fathers. Rather it is about a position, a way of being, a job, a lifestyle and a spiritual connection. The day is often eclipsed by consumerism and superficial platitudes, but it doesn’t have to be. We are better off to remember the things our fathers or father figures taught us along the way. The guidance and strength that was offered through the years. The love that was shown, whether outwardly or not. Father’s Day is celebrated worldwide to recognize the contribution fathers make to the lives of their children. This day celebrates fatherhood and male parenting. Although it is celebrated on a variety of dates worldwide, many countries observe this day on the third Sunday in June.
For myself, I know that being a Father is a tough, yet rewarding position. My two daughters keep me on my toes and I wouldn’t have it any other way!
To Fathers and Father Figures everywhere, Happy Father’s Day!
