Have a look at nice fathers' day gifts.
You've still got time: Father's Day is on Sunday, June 19, 2022 this year. All the better to plan out a fabulous, grilling-centric menu in his honor.
Does Father's Day change every year?
The date changes, yes! Father's Day always falls on the third Sunday in June—which means its actual date changes year to year. For instance, last year, it fell on June 20, and the year before that, it fell on June 21.
What is the history of Father's Day?
Father's Day in the U.S. has a fairly straightforward backstory. But there is one fact that might surprise you: The holiday was dreamt up by a woman! According to History.com, the celebration of Father's Day as we know it today was spearheaded by a woman named Sonora Smart Dodd in 1909. She "tried to establish an official equivalent to Mother’s Day for male parents," and it wasn't long before she won support from local businesses and beyond. On June 19, 1910, the first-ever Father's Day was celebrated in the state of Washington.
Celebration ideas have evolved over the years, and at the start, men weren't especially interested in the holiday because of its sentimental nature. However, as of 2021, most Americans celebrated Dad's day in one way or another, with either their father, partner, or kids! The most popular way to celebrate? Giving a gift! Ree's special dinner idea was a close national second, though. 😂
