Father’s Day is celebrated in many countries around the world, including the United States, on the third Sunday of June. It was founded by Sonora Smart Dodd in 1910 as a way to honor her father, a Civil War veteran who had raised his six children alone after his wife died giving birth to their seventh child.

This holiday has become increasingly popular over the years and is now seen as an opportunity for sons and daughters alike to show appreciation for all that fathers do. In some countries, such as India, Father’s Day is observed as a religious holiday, much like Mother’s Day is. Here are some more facts about Father’s Day.

The most popular Father’s Day gifts are gadgets and electronics. Popular items include tools, sporting goods, audio equipment, outdoor grills, and apparel.

If you can’t decide on a practical gift for your dad on Father’s Day, why not give him an experience? Experiences like concert tickets or sports games make great memories that last long after the day has passed.

In some countries, such as Thailand and South Korea, it is customary to celebrate Father’s Day by giving trees instead of gifts. Thais tie strings of blessed bamboo around the trunk of a tree as a symbol of longevity.

In Germany, Father’s Day is called ‘Vatertag’ and traditionally involves men going outdoors with friends to drink beer and play games like skat or schafkopf!

Some US states have an official state flower for Father’s Day, such as Louisiana (magnolia blossom) and Rhode Island (violet).

Like Mother’s Day, Father’s Day is celebrated by sending cards, flowers, and presents. However, the most popular gift exchange on Father’s Day is usually a tie!

In 1972, President Richard Nixon declared Father’s Day a national holiday in the United States, finally giving dads the recognition they deserved.

Happy Father’s Day!
