WHEN IS FATHER’S DAY 2023?
Father’s Day, which is celebrated in June every year, will be celebrated on Sunday, June 18, 2022 this year.
HOW DID THE FATHER’S DAY APPEAR?
Sonora Smart Dodd, the daughter of an American Civil War veteran, thought that fathers should have a day like Mother’s Day. Dodd’s father had raised his six children alone in their mother’s absence. He started working to declare his father’s birthday, June 5, Father’s Day, but these efforts could not reach that date and the celebrations were postponed to the third Sunday of June.
Father’s Day was first celebrated on June 19, 1910 in Spokane, Washington. In 1924, United States President Calvin Coolidge supported the celebrations; but it has not officially declared Father’s Day. In 1966, Lyndon Johnson, the president of that time, issued a statement declaring that the third Sunday of June would be celebrated as Father’s Day every year. In 1972, Father’s Day was legally declared a public holiday in the USA with the signature of President Richard Nixon.
Catholics, on the other hand, celebrate a different date as Father’s Day. They took this celebration from a religious point of view and celebrated the 19th day of March in memory of the father of the Christian prophet Jesus. They give gifts to their fathers under the name of Joseph’s Day. In some countries, these celebrations have gone beyond their religious characteristics.
