Since 1910, there have been several attempts to establish Father's Day as a national holiday.
Finally, in 1966, President Lyndon B. Johnson proclaimed the 3rd Sunday in June as Father's Day. That made it official.
Father's Day is not just a day to honor fathers. It's a day to thank any male caregiver in your life. It's a chance for you to say thank you to your grandfather, your uncle, your stepfather, and your Dad for all they do for you.
I don't know about your Dad, but mine brushes off all our attempts to thank him. He simply won't let us tell him how wonderful we think he is.
Thanks to this holiday, we get a chance to make him listen to us at least once a year!
