Happy Father's Day 父親節快樂 Father’s Day is a day to honor, celebrate, and appreciate all the fathers and father figures in the world. In some countries, Father's Day is a public and a national holiday, while in others, it is a special day to remind your father or father figure how much you love him.
Father’s day, honoring fatherhood and paternal bonds as well as the influence of fathers in society, began in Catholic countries of Europe, and has been celebrated on March 19 as Saint Joseph's Day since the Middle Ages.
In America Father’s Day began in 1910, two years after the first official celebration of Mother’s Day. The holiday began thanks to a woman named Sonora Smart Dodd, who had been raised with her siblings by her widower father, Civil War veteran William Jackson Smart. Inspired by how her father rose to the challenge of parenting alone, Sonora Smart Dodd thought there should be a special day to recognize dads as well as moms, according to History.com. Dodd campaigned with local government officials, churches and other local organizations, and in 1910, Washington state celebrated its first official Father’s Day on June 19th, marking the first Father’s Day celebration in the country.
Presidents Woodrow Wilson and Calvin Coolidge recognized the significance of the day, but it wasn’t until 1970 that Congress and President Lyndon Johnson designated the third Sunday in June as Father’s Day “urging our people to offer public and private expressions of such day to the abiding love and gratitude which they bear for their fathers.”
In 1972, President Richard Nixon signed a law declaring that Father's Day be celebrated annually on the third Sunday in June. It has been an official, permanent national holiday ever since, except in Australia, New Zealand, Fiji and Papua New Guinea where it is celebrated in September. They did not want to wait a year to celebrate Dad.
The Chinese community around the world honors fathers and father figures in June with America. Although in Taiwan is it celebrated on August 8th the eighth day of the eighth month because 8 (ba) is the same word as father.
