Parents are the greatest gifts any child can have. Just as our childhood and life after that, the word ‘parents’ is also incomplete without a father. As we celebrate the love, care, and support of our mothers on the Mothers Day, the idea of Father’s Day was also to love, respect, and honor the ever present love, support, guidance, and teachings of our fathers in our lives. We can never return the kind of love and affection we receive from our parents, and it would be foolish to think that we can repay them in any way. However, we can dedicate one day to celebrate, honor, and acknowledge the love that we have received from our fathers and make them feel special and thank them for all that they have done for us. All Father’s Day ideas reverberate around the same emotion and try to express our feelings in different ways.
A short history on Father’s Day
The first Father’s Day ever was celebrated by a Babylonian boy named Elmusu who carved a Father’s Day message of clay card and wished father a long and healthy life. It is not known what happened to the father and the son after that, but ever since the Fathers all across the globe has been dedicated a special day.
Later, celebrating Father’s Day Ideas was put forth by a woman named Sonora Smart Dodd in Spokane, Washington. Sonora was brought up by her father after her mother’s death, and while listening to a sermon on Mother’s Day in 1909, she thought of dedicating a day to the father when children will have the opportunity to honor and pay respect to their fathers. Since the birthday of Sonora’s father was in June, she thought of celebrating the first Father’s Day on 19th June 1910.
