Father’s Day began in America in 1910, when Sonora Dodd proposed the day as a way to honour her father who had raised her alone after her mother died during childbirth. June was the birthday month of her father. It wasn’t until 1966 when President Johnson declared every third Sunday of June to be the official Father’s Day, and Nixon made it a federal holiday six years later. It was quick to spread across the pond and is now celebrated widely across the western world.
Did you know that about twenty percent of Father’s Day cards are bought for husbands? It is also the fourth biggest day for sending and buying cards, behind Christmas, Valentines, and Mother’s Day.
In Thailand, everyone wears yellow on Father’s Day and it is celebrated in December. In Germany, it is tradition to sit in beer gardens and drink all day with friends and family, which doesn’t sound bad at all!
Father’s Day is only around the corner, and thinking of something thoughtful to do can be a little tricky.
