If any child is in any trouble, the first person a child remembers is his father. This shows the importance of a father in anyone’s life. Father’s Day is celebrated on the 3rd Sunday of June every year throughout the world.
The first superhero any child meets in their life is their father. Children in their growing years require someone to serve as a role model. Father is a real life super hero for every child. A father works tirelessly day and night for his family in order to educate his children well and support his family. They fix everything in just one click and always stand as a shield for the family. To give respect to this hard work, we celebrate
Father’s Day every year.
There are many great super heroes like Mahatma Gandhi also known as ‘Father of nation’, Galileo Galilei (Father of modern science), Charles Babbage(Father of Computer) and many others, who protected the nation like a father protects the family. Let’s celebrate those fathers also, because of whom we are living independent and achieving heights in every sector.
The Story behind celebrating Father’s Day
There are two major stories behind celebrating Father’s Day.
According to the first story, Father’s Day was celebrated in America on 19 June 1910 to honor the father of Miss Sonora Smart Dooh. Sanora’s father William Smart was a civil war veteran. William Smart’s wife died at the time of giving birth to his sixth child. He raised his six children alone after his wife passed away. After William Smart passed away, his daughter Sanora wanted to celebrate Father’s Day on June 5, on the death anniversary of her father. She believed that all of us always respect the mother’s sacrifices and emotions but no one pays attention to the father’s sacrifices. Not everyone understands the importance of a father in life. In order to celebrate the life and sacrifices of a father, we should celebrate Father’s Day. On this day, we can tell our father how important he is in our lives. For some reasons, it was postponed to the third Sunday of June.
According to the second story, Father’s Day was celebrated for the first time in America in Fairmont, West Virginia. The day was celebrated for the first time on July 5, 1908. It was commemorated in memory of 361 men, who died in 1907 in a coal mine explosion. Father’s Day was officially recognized as a national holiday in 1972 during President Nixon’s reign. Since then, Father’s Day is celebrated every year on the third Sunday of June.
