Father's Day is Sunday, June 19, 2022. Plan ahead!
Origin of Father's Day
Father’s Day, in the United States, is a holiday (the third Sunday in June) to honor fathers. Credit for originating the holiday is generally given to Sonora Smart Dodd of Spokane, Washington, whose father, a Civil War veteran, raised her and her five siblings after their mother died in childbirth. She is said to have had the idea in 1909 while listening to a sermon on Mother’s Day, which at the time was becoming established as a holiday. Local religious leaders supported the idea, and the first Father’s Day was celebrated on June 19, 1910, the month of the birthday of Dodd’s father. In 1924 U.S. Pres. Calvin Coolidge gave his support to the observance, and in 1966 Pres. Lyndon B. Johnson issued a proclamation that recognized the day. It became a national holiday in 1972 when Pres. Richard Nixon signed legislation designating the third Sunday of June as Father’s Day. Father's Day is celebrated on Sunday, June 19, 2022, in most countries.
Why do we celebrate Father's Day！
Father's Day is a day to celebrate and honor the men who have accepted the important role of fatherhood. It is also a day to acknowledge the sacrifices made by fathers and father figures (uncles, grandfathers), to thank them for taking on the responsibility of raising and nurturing children, and for their dedication to their families!
Some suggestions for celebrating Father's Day
Send a DIY gift
Kids can make the perfect Father's Day gift. Why stop there? Make the gift a part of his fun by making this cute DIY tie gift bag. And you don't even need to know how to tie a Windsor knot.
Here's how to make it:
Select a bag that will fit your amazing gift.
Cut a tie shape out of the cardstock or scrapbooking paper so it hangs about 2 inches from the bottom of the brown bag.
Using the glue stick, attach the tie to the top of the bag. Allow it to dry while you move to the next step.
Cut a strip of brown paper (or use the top of another brown bag) about 3 inches wide by 6 inches long. The length will depend on the size of the bag you’re using. Fold the last fourth of each end down (as shown in the picture) and glue the unfolded part to the top of the tie to form a “collar.”
Write your message on one of the gift labels and thread the jute through the hole. Glue the jute underneath the collar.
Done! Scrapbooking paper and cardstock come in all sorts of patterns. Pick one that fits Dad’s unique personality. Palm trees? Stripes? Polka dots? Whatever you decide, Dad is sure to feel special on his special day!
