A father is as dedicated and supporting to a child’s development as a mother. However, we rarely show emotions to father as much as we do to our mothers. From taking him for a movie to planning a spa session for him, there are a number of things that you can do to make the day a memorable one.
FATHER’S DAY: HISTORY
Did you know that Father’s Day was first celebrated in the United States, following a mining mishap on July 5, 1908, wherein hundreds of men died? Grace Golden, a daughter of a dedicated minister, proposed a Sunday service for all the men who lost their lives in the tragic accident, as per almanac.
Years later, Sonora Smart Dodd suggested the idea of observing Father’s Day as she wanted to honour her father, William Jackson Smart. Dodd’s father was a civil war veteran, who raised her and her five siblings as a single parent. Post her education, Dodd started promoting Father’s Day at a national level.
