WHEN IS FATHERS DAY IN THE UK

Fathers Day is a day to honour and celebrate fathers. It always falls on the third Sunday in June. The next Father's Day is on Sunday 21st June 2020

 

 




WHY DO WE CELEBRATE FATHERS DAY

There are a few different ideas. One suggestion is that the idea of Father's Day originated in pagan sun worship. Some branches of paganism see the Sun as the father of the universe. Since the summer solstice occurs around the same time of year as Father's Day, some people see a link between the two. Another suggestion is that a woman called Sonora Smart Dodd was inspired by the American Mother's Day celebrations to plan a day to honour fathers. Father's Day has been celebrated in June since 1910 in the USA. The celebrations in the UK are thought to have been inspired by the American custom of Father's Day
