Do you know why we celebrate Father’s Day ?

The Origin of Father’s Days


Generally, we celebrate June 21st of every year by gifting something to our father and wishing him Happy Father’s Day, but have you ever wondered what is all about this day, or why do we even celebrate it? As a matter of fact, this particular day is not associated with any mythological event or with birth of some great guy with some special contribution to the society or country. Actually Father’s day is the tribute to innocent men which were killed in of Monongah Mining Disaster.


What happened on December 1907?


December 6, 1907 was a hard and cruel day when around 367 men got trapped in two mines of Monongah. The moment which took lives of these men is noticed as 10:28 AM when suddenly an an explosion killed most of the men trapped inside the mine. The blast damaged the ventilation system which caused further havoc.

The explosion was so big that it caused a surface to tremble, it is theorized that the main cause of the blast could be coal dust or the methane gas ignited through an electric spark. What came next was the mourning and tears in the families of the mine workers. This was the worst mining disaster in the history of America.


Aftermath of the crisis.


Around a thousand children left fatherless and it was no less than a roof of shelter taken out by the wind of chaos. A person which also contributed significantly in the establishment of Mother’s Day, suggested her pastor to pay tribute and honor the fathers.

After some years of the event, In June 19, 1910 Father’s day was celebrated in the Spokane, Washington, by Sonora Smart Dodd whose father Mr. William Jackson Smart was a Veteran of a Civil war and a single parent of six children. In the years of 1930’s she started promoting the celebration on a National level, and it was openly accepted as it was a respect toward your parent.


Father’s Day became an official day


However it was also resisted by a few Americans as they saw it as a potential commercial event for merchants and advertisers. It first came into recognition when President Woodrow Wilson In 1916 went to Spokane to speak in a Father’s Day celebration expressed his desire to make it an official day in the Republic. However during 1966, President Lyndon B. Johnson issued an official proclamation regarding Father’s Day and he designated THIRD SUNDAY in June as the official Father’s Day.


What can you do to celebrate the Father’s Day?


Any Father on the earth do not primarily wish for gifts or any celebration, they want their children to learn the ways to cope up with the cruel world. And for that a great way to honor our Father is to show them that we have learned something from his experience. For example : Save a bit of money and pay electricity bill and tell him not to worry about it as you have paid it from the amount of money you saved. Imagine the kind of happiness he would feel over a gift of teddy bear or a watch.

Anyways, a father is a roof on our head, he deserve more than just gifts, he deserve respect, honor and above all, to be with you. So to gift your father something special to express your gratitude for being your parent you can visit our deals page to get best offers on father’s day
