Father’s Day is usually on the third Sunday of June. It celebrates the contribution that fathers and father figures make for their children’s lives. Many people send or give cards or gifts to their fathers. Common Father’s Day gifts include sports items or clothing, electronic gadgets, outdoor cooking supplies and tools for household maintenance. Its origins may lie in a memorial service held for a large group of men, many of them fathers, who were killed in a mining accident in Monongah, West Virginia in 1907.
Traditions on Father’s Day
Father’s Day is a relatively modern holiday so different families have a range of traditions. These can range from a simple phone call or greetings card to large parties honoring all of the ‘father’ figures in a particular extended family. Father figures can include fathers, step-fathers, fathers-in-law, grandfathers and great-grandfathers and even other male relatives. In the days and weeks before Father’s Day, many schools and Sunday schools help their pupils to prepare a handmade card or small gift for their fathers.
Father’s Day Gift Ideas
Father’s Day can be a tough one. Sure, you could just pick him up another tie or “World’s Best Dad” coffee mug – he probably wouldn’t make a fuss. But why not get him something unique this year? After all, we’re talking about the guy who probably taught you how to tie your shoelaces, play catch, build your first aircraft kit, and likely a thing or two about being your best. He deserves a unique gift this year.

A Poem for Our Silent, but Strong Father
He never looks for praises
He’s never one to boast
He just goes on quietly working
For those he loves the most
His dreams are seldom spoken
His wants are very few
And most of the time his worries
Will go unspoken too
He’s there…. A firm foundation
Through all our storms of life
A sturdy hand to hold to
In times of stress and strife
A true friend we can turn to
When times are good or bad
One of our greatest blessings,
The man that we call Dad.
