Father’s Day is a celebration  marked every third Sunday of June to honor fathers, celebrate paternal bonds and the influence of fathers in society.

The American Father’s Day was introduced at the start of the 20th century, following on from the successful promotion of Mother’s Day by Anna Jarvis.

It was reputedly first marked on 5 July, 1908 in West Virginia – also the birthplace of Mother’s Day – by Grace Clayton, who had lost her father in a mining accident.

Two years later, a more widespread Father’s Day commemoration took place across churches in Spokane, Washington organised by Sonora Dodd, who had been inspired by attending a Mother’s Day service the previous year.

Without a doubt, men play a major role.

They are role models, confidants, friends, coaches and disciplinarians too. Fathers are not perfect, they have weaknesses – they are human.

But without them, we would never have been born.

Those fortunate to have a father or father figure will celebrate them as the world marks this special day.
