Today is Your Day, Daddy!

Father’s Day is a day for celebrating fatherhood and honoring our fathers for their great influence in our family and in the society. It is always celebrated every 3rd Sunday of June for most of the countries; however some dates may differ to other places.

When it all did started?

The ever first celebration of Father’s day was July 5, 1908 in Fairmont, West Virginia. The idea came from Mrs. Grace Golden Clayton because she wanted to give honor to 210 fathers that were lost in the disaster in Monongah Mining few months earlier, which is December 6, 1907. Clayton chose the day that fell in Sunday that was nearest her deceased father’s birthday. Unfortunately, for her, the celebration was never honored by the people for many events overshadowed it. All the credit was given to Sonora Dodd, who thought of having her own independent Father’s Day two years later and Clayton’s celebration was all forgotten until 1972 came. One person from the celebration saw the proclamation that Nixon made and started to work for the recovery of its legacy. Ever since, Fairmont was known to be the “Home of the First Father’s Day Service”.

Celebrating Father’s Day

Some family prefers to celebrate Father’s day by eating out together in a fine restaurant or in any casual restaurant wherein the whole family can be accommodated. However, if your family is too big for the venue, they rather celebrate it at home and spend the whole day together with all the immediate family. Some may consider having potluck and other extend to even having a caterer just to make the day very special. Buying a gift for men in general is not easy to do. Men’s selection for gifts before were just things needed for their basic needs like perfume, handkerchief, razor, belt, wallet or shirt. However, lucky for the young generations, gifts for dad now have a wide range of selection from basic to unique items.

I agree, I find it is difficult to choose gifts for men a little bit more so than for women. Bakit kaya? I've bought my dad probably a dozen shirts. Hirap pumili eh. :p
