Even though for one of us a father is that person that you call to ask where your mum is, when she is not answering, for others a dad means the whole world. And despite all the puns and the feminist movements, we do love patriarchy and we`ll never underestimate the role that a father has in a child` s life and development. Alongside mothers, sure, we heard you there in the back. Just that today let`s make it for them, since Father`s day is just around the corner. And we will celebrate as we know better! Not only with cake, but with some spectacular custom Father`s day gifts.
But first, a taste of history
The idea of establishing a offical equivalent Mother`s Day, just for dads came from a woman called Sonora Smart Dodd. The woman was one of the six children raised by a widower. And that pretty much explains her ambition. She was very tenacious with her endeavor. She looked for local support at churces, government officials and YMCA. And she finally succeded.
Father`s Day was celebrated for the first time on June 19, 1910. Gradually, the holiday spread. In 1972, president Nixon signed a proclamation making Fathers Day a federal holiday at last. So, since then we are honoring Fathers Day on the third Sunday of June.
