Every year, the third Sunday in the month of June is celebrated as Father’s Day. The day is dedicated to the father who is always there, the silent protector and guardian. It is the day we acknowledge their contributions, sacrifices and thank them for their unwavering presence. This year, it will be celebrated on June 21 (Sunday).
Legend has it that the day was founded by someone called Sonora Smart Dodd in 1910. She was the daughter of American Civil War veteran William Jackson Smart. Ever since then, the day has been marked and dedicated to all the fathers across the globe and celebrated in almost 111 countries. However, the date varies. In countries like New Zealand and Australia, Father’s Day is celebrated on the first Sunday in the month of September. Celebrations in Brazil are reserved for second Sunday of August.
