Fathers Day 2017 will be celebrated on the third Sunday of this June. It is a day set aside to honor fathers everywhere, whether they are the new father of a baby who is just young to say thank you to themselves, the proud patriarch of a young family, or the father of grown children who has flown the nest but still chooses to remember him on that day. Whether he is a foster or adoptive father, a stepfather or simply a beloved father-figure, a Dad, a Daddy or a Father, this is usually the day to show him how much he means.
This idea of honoring fathers and celebrating their fatherhood originated from the United States. A woman by the name Sonora Smart Dodd was once encouraged by American celebrations of Mother’s Day to plan a day to honor fathers as well. This Day was thus created to make Mother’s Day seem appropriate and more attractive when celebrations honoring dads are organized. This day remembers all Fathers, Grandfathers, great Grandfathers and Father figures for their role in influencing the behavior or development of their children. On this day we celebrate fatherhood and male parenting, paternal bonds and influence of fathers in the society. All dads want to be the best father they can. Father has a very important role in a child’s life. The absence of him in child’s life can also lead to a severe negative impacts onto the child’s personality, and also psychology whereas his presence can have a significant role to play in child’s behavior or development.
Father’s Day, children make special efforts to express their emotions for their dads. Some people choose to visit their father while others choose to give cards, mugs, wallets, and other presents such as clothing, home décor items, etc. A Father’s Day cellebration varies from a simple phone call or sending a greeting card or arranging parties honoring all fathers. Fathers can include father, step- father, father-in-law, grandfathers, and even any other male relatives.
Father’s love, oh how sweet! Mother’s love is often thought of as colorful, warm and tender but we are reluctant to consider father’s love and affection in the same shade. Regrettably, that was not God’s intent. God always intended for a father’s love to complement mother’s love.Children are always proud of their father and Always miss Him when he is not around. Fathers are an intensely loving human beings. They do everything that is possible to ensure that his children are always happy, safe and comfortable.
