Actually I didn’t take this picture. My husband was taking pictures while I was sleeping. I think he really did a great job catching this picture?

Observing the day, people reflect on the invaluable role played by fathers in building the character of children and in the development of the nation. On Father’s Day people honor their father and express gratitude for his love and affection. As a Father’s Day tradition, people in US also pay tribute to grandfather, stepfather, foster father, uncle or any other men who are like father.

History of Father’s Day in USA
Father’s Day festival as we celebrate today traces its history to United States of America. The idea of observing a day in honor of father was conceptualized by Ms Sonora Smart Dodd, a loving daughter from Spokane. It so happened that Sonora attended a Mother’s Day Sermon in 1909 and she was struck with the noble idea that society must observe a day to honor the important contribution made by father in the raising of children. Encouraged by the love of her father, William Smart, a civil war veteran who single-handedly raised her along with her five siblings after the death of her mother, Sonora worked hard to make her concept a reality. The noble idea of celebrating Father’s Day soon spread across the nation. Father’s Day was recognized by a Joint Resolution of Congress in 1956. Finally, in 1972 President Nixon established Father’s Day as a permanent national day of observance on the third Sunday of June.
