About Father’s Day
Father’s Day is simply a day to show honor, affection and appreciation for men who are fathers. For more than 100 years, it has been a way for children and spouses of fathers to thank them for what they mean to their families. Although it was first started in the US state of Washington in 1910, it wasn’t until 1972 that Father’s Day became a nationwide American holiday.
