[Happy Father's Day]



DADDY has been your coach, teacher, biggest fan and supporter all these years. Fathers’ Day is a special day set aside for all of us to remember how truly special Dad is.

Its a day celeberated every third Sunday of June, now it is on 19th of June.

LitBit History

It began with a young woman in Spokane, Wash., in 1909. Sonora Louise Smart was the daughter of a Civil War veteran who was raising his children alone following the death of their mother. Sonora heard a Mother's Day sermon and wondered why there was no holiday honoring fathers. She shared her concern with local ministers at a meeting at the Spokane, Wash. YMCA. The first Father's Day celebration took place at the Spokane Y on June 19, 1910, in William Smart's birth month.

Sonora Smart had suggested that fathers be honored through religious services, special meals, small gifts and the wearing of red roses. In 1972, President Nixon signed Father's Day into law. Today, the day dedicated to Dads has become increasingly an opportunity to lavish gifts and loving gestures on one's father.

Some Quotes

  • Fathers are biological necessities, ........-Margaret Mead
  • Our fathers valued change for the sake of its results; we value it in the act-Alice Meynell
  • Fathers should be neither seen nor heard. That is the only proper basis for family life. -Oscar Wilde

"Father's day celebration is not important thing and my point of view is father's respect is very most important role of our life"

Father's Day Poem

A Dad is a person who is loving and kind,
And often he knows what you have on your mind.
He's someone who listens, suggests, and defends.
A dad can be one of your very best friends!
He's proud of your triumphs,
but when things go wrong,
A dad can be patient and helpful and strong
In all that you do, a dad's love plays a part.
There's always a place for him deep in your heart.
And each year that passes, you're even more glad,
More grateful and proud just to call him your dad!
Thank you, Dad...
for listening and caring, for giving and sharing,
but, especially, for just being you!
Happy Father's Day.
