Fathers play a special role in helping their children grow into good people. There are all sorts of dads worth celebrating on Father’s Day – fun dads, playful dads, nerdy dads, smart dads, creative dads, handy dads – and the list goes on and on. Father’s Day is a great time to express your thanks and appreciation for your dad and all the things he does to support, encourage, entertain, and empower. Take the time to write a thoughtful note in a charming card to tell your dad what he means to you this Father’s Day.
Father’s Day began as an idea inspired by celebrations honoring mothers in the early 1900s. The first Father’s Day was celebrated in Washington state in 1910. By the mid 1920s, states were encouraged by President Calvin Coolidge to celebrate Father’s Day. Father’s Day didn’t initially have the same support as Mother’s Day due to a lack of sentimentality surrounding fathers, and the fact that many fathers at the time disliked the commercialization of the day. Throughout World War II, Father’s Day gained popularity as it was used as a way to commemorate soldiers and support the war effort, and by the end of the war it was a national institution. Father’s Day didn’t become an official national holiday until 1972.
The date we celebrate Father’s Day changes every year. It is celebrated on the third Sunday in June, which this year will be June 18, 2023.
Father’s Day serves as a good reminder to show appreciation for your dad, but there are other men in your life who you may want to think of a little extra on Father’s Day. Show your appreciation for other father figures or important men in your life, such as step-dads, foster dads, grandpas, and uncles. You might also want to take a moment to support and encourage dads you know – for example, a son or son-in-law who is a great dad, or a new dad or dad-to-be. Remind your husband that you appreciate him being a wonderful father to your children. A Father’s Day card is the perfect way to tell all these important men in your life what a great supporter and role model they are.
When writing a note in a Father’s Day card, keep your special and unique relationship with your dad in mind. If your dad is sentimental, write a note that’s warm and genuine. If your dad is goofy and fun, write a note that’s lighthearted and silly – and maybe include a dad joke or pun. Be your authentic self – your dad will love that the most.
Remember to tell your dad what he means to you. Tell him what it is that he does as a dad that you appreciate most – whether it’s that he’s always supportive, that he shares his love of adventure with you, that he has a wealth of knowledge that he’s always ready to share, or that he always has your best interests in mind. He’ll be glad to hear that the things he does for you don’t go unnoticed and that he makes a difference in your life.
