Father’s Day is being celebrated in many countries the world, recognising the contribution that fathers and father figures make to the lives of families and children.

Father’s Day varies from country to country. In Canada, the United Kingdom, and the United States it is celebrated on the third Sunday of June. However, in Taiwan is 8 of August. 

Do you know the story behind Fathers Day?

Father’s Day is celebrating its 110th anniversary and it all began when a young woman wanted to honor her dad.

In May of 1909, Sonora Smart Dodd of Spokane, Wash., sat in church listening to a Mother’s Day sermon. She decided she wanted to designate a day for her dad , William Jackson Smart. Dodd’s mother had died in childbirth, and Dodd’s father, a Civil War veteran, had taken the responsibility of singlehandedly raising the newborn and his other five children.

Inspired, Dodd drew up a petition for the first Father’s Day, which she said should be celebrated on her father’s birthday in early June; however, Dodd convinced several local church communities to participate, but they pushed the date to late June, giving them more time to prepare. 

After that, She continued her mission, determined to elevate Father’s Day to the status of a national holiday. In 1966, the president Lyndon Johnson issued the first presidential proclamation honoring fathers, but it wasn’t until 1972 that President Richard Nixon signed the public law that made it a permanent holiday. Since then, Father’s Day has become a time to recognize the many different father figures in our lives. 

Today, the celebration has become an important event with gift ideas to tell your dad how much do you love him.

How do I celebrate the Fathers Day in my home?

Today is Fathers Day, so I prepared a strawberry cake for celebrate it. I am a person who is hard to tell someone that I love you and hard to communicate with parents. But since I meet my boyfriend who teach me ho to do communication, which now I do know how to communicate with them. Therefore, I start to talk with my parents that what did I like, what didn’t like and what I truly feeling. 

I always know my dad do a lot of things for our family. Such like in my childhood, I always didn’t see him in those time. Because he went out for work before I woke up and he came back so late after I sleep, which I didn’t know why he was keep busy on those days until I become a freshmen in college that we got a great talk day. He told me that he worked so  hard on those days is because he want to bring us to the new and bigger house. Therefore, he need to earn lots of money to buy it and that’s why he had been kept busy on those days.

I suddenly understand why he look so old and tired on those days, it’s all because of us (our family), not just for him. However, in 2019, this Fathers Day is a little bit different that I told him ” I love you and thank you for everything you done for this family. ” 

Oh, I still think it’s so hard to tell, especially in person! Anyway, I hope you guys tell your father how much you love him and thanks him to do anything for your family without any hesitate.  

 

:對你來說父親節是一個什麼樣的節日呢?  

我認為父親節是專屬爸爸的節日,是一個可以好好謝謝他跟告訴他,我愛你的節日

:對你來說爸爸是一個什麼樣的存在?

爸爸其實也是個普通的男人,他也會撒嬌、也會生氣、也會孩子氣,只是他為了這個家學習成長,將對這個家愛轉變成了他家中最大的英雄,冒險家,講故事者和保護者。

 

你知道父親節背後的故事嗎?

父親節是始於一位年輕女子想要尊敬她的父親。

1909年5月,華盛頓州斯波坎市的多德坐在教堂裡,聽母親節講道。她決定為她的父親指定一天為父親節。多德的母親在分娩時去世了,多德的父親是一名內戰老兵,他負責單獨撫養新生兒和其他五個孩子。

受到啟發,多德為第一個父親節起了一份請願書,她說她應該在六月初父親的生日那天慶祝。隨後,多德說服了幾個當地的教會裡的人,不過他們把日期推到了6月下旬,給了他們更多的準備時間。

在那之後,多德決心將父親節提升到國定假日的地位。 1966年,總統林登·約翰遜(Lyndon Johnson)發布了第一份紀念父親的總統公告。直到1972年,理查德·尼克松總統才簽署了公共法,使其成為永久性的假期。從那以後,父親節已成為認識我們生活中許多不同父親形象的時刻。

今天,我如何慶祝父親節?

今天是父親節,所以我準備了一個草莓蛋糕跟家人一起來慶祝父親節。我是一個很難把愛說出口的人,不管是對家人還是對任何人,且以前我完全不知道如何跟父母溝通的人。所以我都是自己做決定,自己跑所有的流程,確定下來之後,就跟他們說我做了什麼事、做了什麼決定… 。直到現在我遇見了我的男朋友,他教我如何去溝通。因此,現在我開始會和父母談談我喜歡什麼,不喜歡什麼以及我真正感受到什麼。

我一直都知道我爸爸為我們的家人做了很多事情。就像在我童年時,我總是不常看到爸爸,因為他在我醒來之前就出去工作,他工作回來後,我已經睡了。那時我不知道為什麼他在這些日子裡,一直這麼地忙錄。直到我成為大學新生時,有一個契機,讓我和爸爸在深夜的時候,深入的談話。他告訴我,那些日子他努力工作是因為,他想幫我們家買一個更大的房子裡。因此,他需要賺很多錢,也就是為什麼他這麼忙碌的原因。

今年,這個父親節對我來說有點不同,因為我告訴他:”我愛你,並感謝你為這個家庭所做的一切。 ”  哦,我仍然覺得這很難說,特別是當面親自告訴他!就連我弟也告訴我爸:爸,你知道我最愛你了吧,父親節快樂喔!

無論如何,我希望你們告訴你的父親你有多愛他,並感謝他毫不猶豫地為你的家人做任何事情。

 

Happy Fathers Day.
