When is Father’s Day 2016?
The date to celebrate your dad this year is Sunday, June 19, 2015. Father’s Day is always celebrated in America on the third Sunday in June, so keep that in mind for next year. Also remember that Father’s Day is not a federal holiday, so businesses should run as usual. So, where did the idea of Father’s Day come from?
Wales Online reports what many historians believe:
“Grace Golden Clayton was the founder of the first Father’s Day in Fairmont, West Virginia on July 5, 1908 after Monongah, a nearby town, suffered a mine explosion killing more than 360 men. Over 200 of these men were fathers and left behind their widows and more than 1,000 sons and daughters prompting Grace to initiate the idea of a special day for fathers to be honoured and remembered.”
