When is Father’s Day in 2021?
Don’t worry, you’ve still got time. Father’s Day is celebrated on the third Sunday of June, so this year it falls on Sunday, June 20, 2021. You’ve got plenty of time to plan out a fabulous, backyard BBQ party, buy him a shirt or T-Shirt and pair of shorts, and brush up on your favorite dad jokes.
Origin of Father’s Day
Honoring our father figures was a tradition spearheaded by Sonora Smart Dodd back in 1909. She was trying to establish an official holiday that’s equivalent to Mother’s Day. Her idea won support from local businesses and beyond, and on June 19, 1910, the first-ever Father’s Day was commemorated in the state of Washington.
Make it a Day to Remember
There are so many exciting things that you can plan for the big day. Like most dads, if yours loves backyard barbeques, host a lovely BBQ with friends. You can buy him a special grilling tool set for the day along with a drinking game. You can even make sports-themed donuts and decorate them together. Make sure, he’s wearing a shirt supporting his team. You can even watch his favorite movies or go fishing together, just like old times.
