In all our good times and bad times, our family supports us with the best care. Every member of the family plays a vital role in our life. Father is the one who is the head of the family and the one on whom all the family members can rely.
We consider all our fathers as our first superhero, who teaches us about good and evil. For a complete family, both support of our father and our mother are necessary. That is why we celebrate Father’s Day every year to appreciate his efforts in our life.
While growing up, we watch stories and cartoons of superheroes. Everybody wants a superhero in their life. But the real and first superhero in the lives of a child is their father.
For every person, the father is the symbol of strength that binds the entire family together. A father works day and night tirelessly to support the whole family economically and morally.
Whenever we are stuck in a problem, the first person we remember is our father. Father is a pivotal element of the society and stands as a pillar for the family, on whom we can rely. So, to respect all the fathers around the world and their efforts, we celebrate Father’s Day on 3rd sunday of June every year worldwide.
Father’s Day in Catholic Europe is celebrated to remember Saint Joseph, famous for being a father to not just Jesus Christ but also everybody.
How did 'Father's Day' come about?
Sonara Smart Todd was born in 1882, the daughter of Willian Jackson Smart Todd and Ellen. Her mother Ellen, who went into her sixth childbirth when Sonara was 16, died. William Jackson has been the mother and father of six children since remarriage. Sonara was greatly impressed by her father's sense of commitment.
Since then International Father’s Day has been observed on the third Sunday in June. In 1972, Nixon, then President of the United States, recognized Father's Day. Sonara's effort back then has created an environment to remember the fathers who shaped our dreams today.
Father’s Day is celebrated all around India with pomp and glory. It is a day for a very personalized celebration.
Children show their love and respect for their fathers by giving them gifts and cards. Several educational institutes, including schools and colleges, arrange different cultural programs to interact between the students and their fathers.
The television and radio broadcast different Father’s Day programs that day. Online portals and social media get flooded with people posting pictures with their fathers, from childhood memories to grown-up memories.
Nowadays, people are always engaged with their busy schedules, and may not be able to express love and support to their fathers frequently. That is why we utilize Father’s Day to appreciate our fathers for their extreme contribution.
Father’s role in our lives cannot be explained in words. So, on Father’s Day, we celebrate fatherhood and appreciate all the love and support they gave us immensely throughout our lives.
It is not just father’s day, it should be every day, that we wake up in the morning with immense gratitude towards our father for providing us with a happy life that we are living, for protecting us from the evils, for showering us with love, and being the support system and guiding us in all the life’s path.
Loving and honoring our father on just one day by maybe posting about them in social media or giving them gifts is not enough. We must appreciate their role in our lives every day throughout the year. Our father is the one who will always stay by our side.
