We celebrate our fathers giving them love and affection making it their special day each year but what is Father’s day all about? We at AMERiders did some digging and we will let you know what this Sunday is all about.
What is Father’s Day?
Want to know what This Father’s Day is in the United States? Father’s Day is on the third Sunday of June. It celebrates the contribution that fathers and father figures make for their children’s lives. Its origins may lie in a memorial service held for a large group of men, many of them fathers, who were killed in a mining accident in Monongah, West Virginia in 1907. In 1966, President Lyndon B. Johnson issued the first presidential proclamation honoring fathers, designating the third Sunday in June as Father’s Day. Six years later, the day was made a permanent national holiday when President Richard Nixon signed it into law in 1972.
What Do People Do?
This Father’s Day is an occasion to mark and celebrate the contribution that your own father has made to your life. Many people send or give cards or gifts to their fathers. Common Father’s Day gifts include sports items or clothing, electronic gadgets, outdoor cooking supplies, tools for household maintenance, and things for Dad’s favorite hobby.
Father’s Day is a relatively modern holiday so different families have a range of traditions. These can range from a simple phone call or greetings card to large parties honoring all of the ‘father’ figures in a particular extended family. Father figures can include fathers, step-fathers, fathers-in-law, grandfathers and great-grandfathers and even other male relatives. In the days and weeks before Father’s Day, many schools and Sunday schools help their pupils to prepare a handmade card or small gift for their fathers.
Organizations, businesses, and stores are open or closed, just as they are on any other Sunday in the year since it is not a federal holiday only national. Public transit systems run to their normal Sunday schedules. Restaurants may be busier than usual, as some people take their fathers out for a treat. Also, businesses and stores run many sales for the holiday as well. Today, economists estimate that Americans spend more than $1 billion each year on Father’s Day gifts.
