History of Father’s Day celebrations:
The idea of celebrating Father’s Day Festival was introduced by Ms Sonora Smart Dodd, a loving daughter from Spokane. Her father Henry Jackson Smart single-handedly raised her with five of her siblings after the death of her mother during childbirth. When Sonora attended a Mother’s Day Sermon in 1909, she thought that if there is the day to honor mother then there should also be a corresponding day to honor fathers. Sonora worked relentlessly for years to ensure that the idea of Father’s Day becomes a reality. In 1924 President Calvin Coolidge first recognized Father’s Day. In line with the massive popularity of the festival, in 1972, President Richard Nixon established a permanent national observance of Father’s Day to be held on the third Sunday of June.
Over the years, Father’s Day spread beyond geographical boundaries and today, millions of children across the world express gratitude for their role model as they celebrate Father’s Day festival.
Why is Father’s Day important?
Kids want the kind of stability that comes with knowing their father’s are there for them, and father’s can learn new insights by gaining the perspectives of their children. Being involved in your kids’ lives means keeping an eye on them too, which helps prevents getting involved with groups or activities that can lead to concerning behaviors. Fathers are always special and important, and we don’t know what we would do without you.
Though traditionally father is seen more as a provider and guide for children, the scenario appears significantly changed in the nuclear family culture of today. With most husband and wife working, fathers in present times are as involved in child grooming job as the mothers are. Today, most fathers do not shy away from changing nappy or singing lullaby’s for his babies. This cultural change is helping in strengthening father-child relationship and consequently in emotional development of a child and building of stronger family bonds.
