Why & when do we celebrate Father’s Day?

Remember all those days when your father came back home, exhausted from the entire day’s work, but still had the resolve to play with you and help you with your homework. Remember how he always brought you goodies that you used to munch on. This Father’s Day, thank him for all his contributions in your life and send Father’s Day gifts to India along with a heartfelt Father’s Day quote. This small gesture will mean the world to him and he will rejoice every bit of it.

But how did the idea of celebrating fatherhood come into existence? The celebration of Father’s Day started in the United States of America. Sonora Smart Dodd, inspired by Mother’s Day celebration, campaigned to celebrate fathers and their love. Her single father nurtured her and her siblings and gave them all she wanted and that is why she campaigned for the occasion. And this is how the celebration came into existence.

Different countries celebrate the day on different dates. In India, as in the USA, we celebrate Father’s Day on the third Sunday of June. This year it is going to be celebrated on Sunday, June 16. Though people in different countries celebrate it on different dates, the idea is the same. People do special things to kindle the heart of their father and father figures. Father figures can include fathers, step-fathers, fathers-in-law, grandfathers, great-grandfathers and even other male relatives of the family.

Children buy gifts for their fathers, make cards for him, and thank him for his love and care. Some even make breakfast for him, take him out for lunch or just spend the whole day with him. People, who do not live with their fathers, make a special effort to visit him on this day, present him with gifts. One can also plan a party and invite the family members and even the extended family.

Cakes and flowers are always needed when it comes to celebrating something. You can choose from a wide range of cakes and floral gifts to amaze your dad. Photo cakes are the most obvious choice for the occasion, but you can go with other Father’s Day cakes variants as well.
