Today, June 19, is going to be celebrated as Father’s Day in most of the countries of the world. Though in a very few countries, Father’s Day is commemorated on different days. Like Mother’s Day, Father’s Day is also celebrated with great enthusiasm.In our society, parents are the backbone of the family as well as society. They used to sacrifice their lives for the betterment of children. So the children should be careful of their parents. They are obviously indebted to them. Because of this, it’s observed in society as Father’s Day.Father’s Day is a holiday of honouring fatherhood and paternal bonds, as well as the influence of fathers in society. In Catholic countries of Europe, it has been celebrated on March 19 as Saint Joseph’s Day since the Middle Ages.In the United States, Father's Day was founded by Sonora Smart Dodd,[1][2][3] and celebrated on the third Sunday of June for the first time in 1910. The day is held on various dates across the world, and different regions maintain their own traditions of honouring it. Father’s Day is a recognised public holiday in Lithuania and some parts of Spain and was regarded as such in Italy until 1977. It is a national holiday in Estonia, Samoa, and equivalently in South Korea, where it is celebrated as Parents’ Day. The holiday complements similar celebrations honouring family members, such as Mother’s Day, Siblings Day, and Grandparents’ Day.Early historyFor centuries, the Eastern Orthodox Church has appointed the second Sunday before Nativity as the Sunday of the Forefathers to commemorate the ancestors of Christ according to the flesh, starting with Adam and emphasising the Patriarch Abraham, to whom God said,In thy seed shall all of the nations of the earth be blessed— Genesis 12:3, 22:18This feast can fall between December 11 and 17.[4][5] This feast includes the ancestors of Mary, mother of Jesus and various prophets.A customary day for the celebration of fatherhood in Catholic Europe is known to date back to at least 1508. It is usually celebrated on March 19, as the feast day of Saint Joseph, who is referred to as the fatherly Nutritor Domini (“Nourisher of the Lord”) in Catholicism and “the putative father of Jesus” in southern European tradition.This celebration was brought to the Americas by the Spanish and Portuguese. The Catholic Church actively supported the custom of a celebration of fatherhood on St. Joseph’s Day from either the last years of the 14th century or from the early 15th century,[6] apparently on the initiative of the Franciscans.[7]. In the Coptic Orthodox Church, the celebration of fatherhood is also observed on St Joseph’s Day, but the Copts observe this on July 20. The Coptic celebration may date back to the fifth century.[6]Whether to celebrate this day worldwide or not remains a debatable topic. In 1908, Grace Golden Clayton proposed the day to honour those men who had lost their lives in a mining accident in the US. Though it was not accepted then, in 1909 Sonora Smart Dodd, who along with her five brothers was raised by her father alone, after attending Mother’s Day in a church, convinced the Spokane Ministerial Association to celebrate Father’s Day worldwide.[8][9]Hindu CalendarDefinitionSample DateCountry/ TerritoryBhadrapada AmavasyaGokarna.
