The nation’s first Father’s Day was celebrated on June 19, 1910, in the state of Washington. However, it was not until 1972–58 years after President Woodrow Wilson made Mother’s Day official–that the day honoring fathers became a nationwide holiday in the United States. Father’s Day 2020 occurs on Sunday, June 21.
Happy Father’s Day!
What Is The True Meaning Of Father’s Day?
Fatherhood is not about one day out of the year where we hang out with the men who are fathers, but rather it is about a position, a way of being, a job, a lifestyle and a spiritual connection that is eclipsed by consumerism and superficial platitudes. Father’s Day is celebrated worldwide to recognize the contribution that fathers and father figures 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!
