Father’s Day

Posted on June 15th, 2022

By definition, a father is “a man in relation to his child or children” according to this definition from dictionary.com every one of us has a father and our existence is partially a result of our father.

June 19, 2022, but let’s not wait till father’s day a father can be celebrated every day. Each day should be a day of recognizing individuals’ whether it’s a father, family member, co-worker, friend, or just another person you come in contact with. Even though having a special day to recognize an individual is special, recognition doesn’t require a special day.

The first Father’s Day holiday celebration was in 1910, 2 years after Mother’s Day in 1908 but wasn’t nationally recognized until 1972, nearly 58 years after the recognition of Mother’s Day.

It’s that lack of recognition, that makes a good father so special, fathers provide stability, strength, guidance, and leadership with little fan fare or recognition. These fathers are your soldiers, police officers, firefighters, chefs, and environmental services workers. They are not often seeking recognition and don’t require a special day, but on this day June 19, 2022, it is the day created to acknowledge their contributions to our society.

Happy Father’s Day from RSA!
