June 19th is celebrated as Father’s Day in most countries, it is a day to cherish the beautiful paternal bond. Father’s play a very important role in our lives and this day is a reminder to shower them with love, affection, and care. Most times, fathers are the unsung heroes of our daily lives.
When was the first-ever Father’s Day celebrated?
While the exact origin is unknown, it is believed that the first-ever Father’s Day celebration was proposed by a woman named Sonora Smart Dodd in 1909 who believed that a father’s role in shaping a child’s life and their valued contribution is often overlooked. She decided to honour her own father who was by nature a very quiet man. Officially, this day began to be celebrated only later, once an official Mother’s Day was announced in the US. Nevertheless, most countries in the world have their own designated days to celebrate this day. For instance, countries like Taiwan and China celebrate Father’s Day on June 24th whereas countries like Australia and New Zealand celebrate it in September.
