Father’s Day is celebrated on September 2nd this year, and, while it’s usually a quiet holiday, it’s still a great chance to show love and appreciation for Dad. In fact, that's how Father's Day initially began, through a daughter wanting to show love for her father. Have a read of this blog to discover the history of Father's Day and some unique gift ideas, we think he'll love.
The History of Father’s Day
The idea for Father’s Day began around June 1910. A woman, Sonora Smart Dodd, after attending a Mother’s Day sermon in church felt fathers deserved as much attention and began campaigning for the idea in Washington. She was inspired in part by her own father, a widower who had raised his six children. The holiday was officially marked in the US in 1972 by Linden B. Johnson. Since then, it has become an international tradition, celebrated at different times of the year.
