Father's Day is a special occasion dedicated to honouring and celebrating the extraordinary fathers and father figures who have played a significant role in shaping our lives. In this blog, we’ll explore Father’s Day history and traditions, and provide a range of Father’s Day gift ideas to help you celebrate Dad.
The Origin of Father's Day: A Tribute to Fatherly Love
Father's Day has a rich history that dates back to ancient times when fathers were revered and celebrated as symbols of strength and protection. Throughout history, fathers have been the pillars of their families, providing guidance, love, and support.
The modern-day Father's Day as we know it started to gain momentum in the early 20th century when a loving daughter, Sonora Smart Dodd, sought to honour her father, who single-handedly raised her and her siblings. Inspired by the idea of Mother's Day, she proposed a special day to appreciate fathers and their contributions to families and society.
In 1910, the first Father's Day was observed in the United States, and after years of campaigning, it was officially recognised as a national holiday in 1972.
When Is Father’s Day NZ?
Since its inception in the United States in 1910, Father's Day has become a beloved celebration worldwide, including here in New Zealand with the First Father’s Day celebrated in the 1920s. Father’s Day is celebrated on the first Sunday of September each year.
