Father’s Day 2018! Let’s talk about History & Gift Ideas

This Sunday, June 17th is the day to celebrate Dad!

Before giving some last-minute gift ideas, let’s go back to the origin of Father’s Day.

It appears that in Europe, fathers have been celebrated since the Middle Ages. It was said that it is customary to pamper our fathers on June 19, the… Saint Joseph’s day! Yes, the patron saint!

Closer to home, however, Father’s Day has its origins in a 1910’s initiative of the American Sonora Smart Dodd who, on June 19th, in Spokane, Washington, paid tribute to William Jackson Smart, his widowed father.

Now that the historical background has been well defined… onto the festivities!
