The importance of a father can't be neglected or ignored at all and he is the superhero who is always ready to take on everyday troubles of his children. Fathers play an important role in a child’s life – they stand by them through thick and thin and help them achieve the best in life. So what is better than celebrating their sacrifices and efforts?

 

Father’s day has been celebrated all around the world and it goes back to the time of the Middle Ages when the celebration of fatherhood was done with a customary day in Catholic Europe. This day was observed on 19th March. Father’s day was celebrated as the feast day of Saint Joseph who was also known as the fatherly Nutritor Domini or the "Nourisher of the Lord". This Father festival was later brought to America which later got popular globally after 1910.

To celebrate this special bond between children and their father, Father’s Day is celebrated every year in the third week of June. This year, it falls on June 16 in India. It is basically to celebrate the special bond between the child and the father and appreciate his importance in your life. The day is meant to recall, recognise and remember the endless efforts, initiatives and contributions of all the fathers around us.

 

While the day is celebrated on different days worldwide, the underlying significance is to celebrate fathers around the world. And for kids with single mothers, the new traditions also celebrate their efforts of playing both parental roles.

 

Father's Day is a relatively modern holiday, so different families have different traditions. What is it that you do to make your fathers feel special? Let us know in the comments section below.
