Happy Father’s Day

HAPPY FATHER’S DAY

Honoring thy father is a concept that dates back to the very roots of human civilization. But the day meant to really make your dad feel special is far, far newer than that — at least in the U.S. While Mother’s Day was established officially in 1914, Father’s Day had a 64-year long road to becoming an officially recognized holiday. It was President Lyndon B. Johnson who declared the third Sunday in June as Father’s Day, though it was not yet made a permanent national holiday. It took President Nixon’s re-election campaign to get an official proclamation signed in 1972 to recognize this day as a federal holiday, which is now celebrated with food, gifts, and quality time together.

Father’s Day was invented by American Mrs. Sonora Smart Dodd who wanted to honour her father, a veteran who had, as a single parent, raised his six children. The first Father’s Day was celebrated on June 19, 1910. The first American president to support the concept of Father’s day was President Calvin Coolidge, who did so in 1924.

Going for a floral gift? Traditionally fathers should be given the gift of white or red roses. The rose is the official flower for Father’s Day. Wearing a red rose signifies a living father, while a white one represents deceased father.
