The modern, and some would say, commercial Father’s Day of western culture probably has it’s roots in America – introduced as a balance for the more traditional and historic event of Mothers Day. Grace Golden Clayton of West Virginia, is believed to have been inspired to celebrate fathers after a mine exploded in nearby Monongah at the turn of the century killing almost 400 men. So she decided to establish an event specifically to recognise fathers.
But, in the Roman Catholic tradition, Fathers are celebrated on Saint Joseph’s Day, commonly called the Feast of Saint Joseph, on March 19. Joseph was the father of Jesua and San José is the patron of the Catholic church.
In the Anglican world however, it is June that is most commonly reserved for the occasion.
In early times, flowers were worn to celebrate Father’s Day. Today, it is more common to give a present. And this Father’s Day could be an opportunity to gift your father (or grandfather) a more meaningful present – a gift with real significance.
