Celebrating fatherhood has been around since families began. In the middle ages, it was formally established by Catholic Europeans as a day to honor fathers; known as St. Joseph’s Day, occurring yearly on March 19 and is still an active celebration there today. In the U.S., Father’s Day was initially proposed as early as 1908 as a civic celebration. It wasn’t proclaimed as a National holiday for another fifty-eight years until 1966, and six years later, in 1972, became firmly established. Today Father’s Day is celebrated annually on the third Sunday of June.
