Today we honor all father’s. They may, or may not, be our actual father, they may be a step father or a person who treated us like one of their own children, it’s to honor the idea of being a father. Someone who cares, helps whenever they can and is always there for us… oh, and generally is full of bad jokes. The first Father’s Day was in Spokane, Washington on May 18th, 1910. It caught on and spread really fast since nearly everyone wants to honor their father by making a special day for them. In reality, just like Mother’s Day, it should be 365 days a year instead of just the third Sunday of June. However, since that would be hard to do, we pick, this year, June 16th. So go out of your way to make it a special day for them… after all, they’ve done what they could to make every day of your life a special day for you.
Howto celebrate – Honor your father (Whether they are actually related of not) Take your father to lunch (They’ll probably want to go someplace cheap anyway) Let your father know you love them.
