Today is Father’s Day, which is celebrated every year on the third Sunday of June.
Its the day when we specially honor all the fathers in this world. One cannot shut his eyes against the hardships they undertake to keep their family safe and happy. Father’s Day complements Mother’s Day, the celebration honoring mothers.
The Father’s Day is a day of commemoration and celebration of Dad -the special man in our life. We often forget the sacrifice of our fathers and the roles they have played in shaping our lives. Father’s Day gives us the opportunity to show and express our love and care to this man, who deserves our support most.
Father’s Day is the most appropriate platform to make us look beyond ‘our own’ family and honor the man who brought us joy and happiness. it is a day to honor not only your father, but all men who have acted as a father figure in your life – whether as Stepfathers, Uncles, Grandfathers, or “Big Brothers.”
The word ‘Father’ is often used to honor spiritual leaders, inventors and originator of an idea, product, service or person. It is so, that fathers have always been associated with guidance and protection, as the person who can be loved, respected and looked up to.
Let’s use the Father’s Day to let these special men know what place they have in our lives and what influence they have on us. Don’t forget to make this day special day more special!
Father’s Day is a time of burnt toast and breakfast in bed, family gatherings, and crayon scribbled “I Love You Dad” and, of course, that lovely new tie!
