This year, Father’s Day lands on June 20th. On this day, many people make a special effort for their fathers or father figures. Showing appreciation for all the work they do, either at home, or in the workplace.
Father's Day in the U.S. has a reasonably detailed backstory (unlike Mother's Day, which is not quite as cut-and-dry). The holiday was dreamt up by a woman! Father's Day was actually started by a woman named Sonora Smart Dodd in 1909. She "tried to establish an official equivalent to Mother's Day for male parents," and it was not long before she won support from local businesses and beyond. On June 19th, 1910, the first-ever Father's Day was celebrated in the state of Washington.
Some people visit their fathers, while others give cards, flowers, or other gifts, such as clothing, sporting equipment, or luxury food items. Father's Day is a relatively modern holiday, so different families have different traditions. These can range from a simple phone call or greetings card to large parties honoring all father figures in an extended family. Father figures can include fathers, stepfathers, fathers-in-law, grandfathers, great-grandfathers, and even other male relatives.
