Father's Day (2010)

Father's Day is being celebrated around the world on the third Sunday of June. It is being commemorated to honor fatherhood and male caretakers.

According to history, Father's Day was born as a token of love and gratitude that a daughter cherishes for her beloved father. It was the idea of a woman named Sonora Smart Dodd to celebrate Father's Day (during a Mother's Day sermon at a church) because after her mother died, it was her father Henry Jackson Smart who made all parental sacrifices and took over all the responsibilities of a mother could have done to her children. Mr. Henry Smart was born on June 19, 1910 that's why Sonora Smart Dodd chose to celebrate Father's Day every third Sunday of June.

President Nixon of the United States of America permanently declared a national observance of Father's Day in every third Sunday of June.

In honoring my father's unconditional love for us, I always wish him good health for the years to come. Through good and bad times, my father is always there to support, guide, and teach us how to be strong.

Thank you Father for all your sacrifices and love! Happy Father's Day!
