Why do we celebrate Father’s Day?
First things first, it’s important to understand why we celebrate Father’s Day. Believe it or not, Mother’s Day had a hand in the creation of Father’s Day, though the history is not exactly a straightforward one.
In 1909, an American woman named Sonora Louise Smart proposed a similar day for fathers to several local clergymen after hearing a speech in church about Mother’s Day. Sonora was raised by her father after her mother passed away in childbirth with her sixth child. She felt that paternal figures deserved similar recognition. Thus, June 19th 1909 is recognised as the first unofficial Father’s Day.
Over half a decade later, US President Lyndon B. Johnson decided that every third Sunday in June should be Father’s Day. Today, families across the world continue to celebrate the special men in their lives on this day.
You’ll secure a place in his good books until next year! We only get one chance a year to truly honour the men in our lives. To make this year one to remember, book a table between 12-4pm or download our menu today.
