The History of Father’s Day
Father’s Day celebrated its 100th anniversary on June 19 2020, and it all began when a young woman wanted to honor her dad.
Fathers day is a special day celebrated on different dates throughout the world. It is a day when families can come together and thank their fathers and all fathers for their example, influence and contribution they have made in the home and in society at large.
Fathers day was first celebrated in 1910 because a young woman wanted to recognise and honor her father’s efforts in raising her and her younger siblings on his own, as his wife had died in childbirth.
Today, Fathers Day is celebrated in Australia on the first Sunday in September. In America, it is celebrated on the third Sunday in June.
Most of us love our dads and their contribution to our upbringing and take pleasure in giving them a gift each year to signify our love and respect.

It has long been a tradition for many school children to create one of their own homemade fathers day cards to give their Dad.
