Father’s Day: A day to thank dad for all he’s done, and a day to remember all of the important men in your life.

Father’s Day is a day of commemoration and celebration of all dads. It’s a day to honor our fathers, and others who have acted as father figures in our lives – stepfathers, uncles, grandfathers, brothers and close friends.

The first Father’s Day was observed on June 19, 1910 in Spokane, Washington. In 1924, President Calvin Coolidge supported the idea of a national Father’s Day. In 1966, President Lyndon Johnson signed a presidential
proclamation declaring the 3rd Sunday of each June as Father’s Day.

And what does this special day mean to a dad? It’s a day when all dads should enjoy their children and families. A day of fishing or golfing is an All-American favorite for some dads. Moms all around the world will be taking over the BBQ to make a spectacular meal.

In recent years, retailers have promoted male-oriented gifts such as electronics and tools. Schools and other children’s programs encourage children to make a Father’s Day gift – something special for that special someone in their lives.

It truly is a great day to sit back and reflect on all of the wonderful things that our dads have done for us. In today’s contemporary society, fathers often work overtime during the week, and then spend their weekends involved in their children’s activities. There’s rarely time for dad to sit back and relax in today’s hectic world.

It’s nice to have a special day set aside when we can enjoy the ones we love, and let them know that we appreciate them and all that they’ve done for us. Fathers don’t always receive the recognition they deserve. Some households couldn’t function properly without them.

There’s so much to being a great dad. As a family man, he has many roles – bread winner, “Mr. Fix It,” sports director, homework helper and a guide to growing up happy and healthy. There’s a lot of stress and pressure put on men today to do so much – and to do it right!

A dad can do it all naturally – from the day he becomes a father. He just seems to know how to turn a screwdriver, hammer a nail, fix Barbie’s leg and take you out to your first baseball game. Our dads are amazing people who deserve this day of recognition.

Celebrate Father’s Day with your dad and give thanks for all that he’s done to make your life better in so many ways.
