Fathers play a very important role in our life. They are the inspiration for us to go head in life. They are the guiding star, when we cannot decide anything. They are the source of our inner strength. They are the unsung heroes of our life. However many of us do not acknowledge the fact, since fathers have to act strict sometimes to induce discipline and responsibility in our life. Father’s day is the ideal occasion, when you can actually give tribute to your father for all his love, care, and support. Father’s day celebrations not only make your father happy and contented, but it also makes your father feel special in your life. Moreover, your father can recognize his value in your life.
Father’s day is celebrated in more than 60 countries in the world. Although, the way of celebration is different in every country, but when it comes to the essence, every country tries to show honor and respect to all the fathers and father figures. Father’s day celebration began much later than Mother’s day. Sonora Smart Dodd first recognized the importance of father’s day after mother’s day. She felt that there should be a separate day to dedicate to all fathers. The idea of father’s day occurred in Sonora Smart Dodd’s mind when she was hearing a Mother’s day sermon. That was in 1909. In the next year in 1910, she started celebrating Father’s day on June 19 in Spokane, even though; it took several years to make it an official holiday. Generally, father’s day is celebrated on the third Sunday in the month of June, but many countries observe the day in different dates.

Different countries observe the occasion in different ways. In some countries, the occasion is simply made for fathers; while in some countries, people dedicate the holiday to all fathers and fatherly figures.
