Father’s Day 2020: Date, history, and significance of the day

Happy Father’s Day 2020 Date: While the dates vary from country to country, the day is largely celebrated on the third Sunday in June. As such, this year, it will be celebrated on June 21.

Happy Father’s Day 2020: As the name suggests, Father’s Day is a special occasion that commemorates fathers and father figures around the world, and acknowledges and honors their efforts and contributions towards raising their children. Akin to Mother’s Day, this day aims to throw light on the influence fathers have in the lives of their kids, and on the society at large. While the dates vary from country to country, the day is largely celebrated on the third Sunday in June. As such, this year, it will be celebrated on June 21.

It is believed that Father’s Day was founded by one Sonora Smart Dodd — who was the daughter of American Civil War veteran William Jackson Smart — in America, in the year 1910. Since then, the day has been celebrated every year in as many as 111 countries. In some countries like Australia and New Zealand, however, it is said that Father’s Day is celebrated on the first Sunday in the month of September. And in Brazil, meanwhile, fathers are honored on the second Sunday of August.

Remember that just like mothers, fathers are important, too, and that they have made many sacrifices for you, which perhaps you may not even be aware of. Love them, cherish them and celebrate them. Happy Father’s Day in advance!
