Have you imagined what we would have done without our dad? Who would take you on rides, bring you goodies, care for you like none, and give you so much love? Dads are definitely our heroes. Hence, every year on the third Sunday in June, make sure that you let him know how much he means to you and how much you love him because that’s when Father’s Day falls!
History of the Father’s Day
Father’s Day originates from back in medieval Europe when the Catholics dedicated an entire day to honor fathers, paternal relationships, and fatherhood. If we fast forward it to a couple of hundred years, it is now a holiday held worldwide, which is a testament to show how important our fathers are in our lives. However, the date keeps fluctuating around the globe, so make sure to check it wherever you are in the world.
Father’s Day has a vibrant history in America that dates back to the 20th century. But to understand this day, we must go back to the post-civil war reconstruction era, back to the 1860s, and a day that celebrates Mother’s Day.
How to celebrate Father’s Day
You can celebrate Father’s Day with your dad in many ways.
- Play golf with your dad.
Your dad would love to play golf with you, and this can be because it takes place on a huge lawn, which they wouldn’t have to mow. It is also because they tend to tap into their inner speed demon, which whirls around the course with reckless abandon on the electric golf carts. Or perhaps, it is just simply quiet and peaceful.
- Surfing channels
Let us be honest. Our dad is never satisfied with watching just one episode of a show, and they always toggle back and forth between different shows. Well, only in the commercials, though!
- Play games with him
Well, you and your dad can connect over games he likes to play indoors or outdoors. Play his favorite game with him and make his day joyful and brighter. Make him feel special on his day.
- Sit with him and have a deep conversation.
Sit with him and have deep conversations about life, about anything that you want to talk about. Make him feel like your friend and that he means much to you.
- Spend your day out
Take your dad for lunch or dinner and treat him to his favorite food. You can alternatively even cook his favorite dish for him and make him feel special. Whatever you decide to do, make sure that he loves it.
Well, irrespective of what your dad likes to do and his schedule, make sure you indulge him and make him do what he likes on Father’s Day. He deserves to be treated nicely and feel special because he earned it, after all!
