Father’s Day 2022

“Dads are most ordinary men, turned into heroes!”

Showing appreciation for those you love and connecting with family is more important than ever. Father’s Day presents the opportunity to celebrate the dads, fathers-in-law, granddads, husbands, and all the other father figures in our lives.

This year, Father’s Day falls on the 19th of June. At Colwick Hall, we want to share what we’re doing to celebrate this special day.

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.

How we’re celebrating Father’s Day

At this point, you’ve probably ticked off many tried and tested Father’s Day plans, some even more than once. So why not do something extra special this June and honour your old man in Colwick Hall style?

The best gift you can give the man you love most is a meal as special as he is. Nothing beats a delicious sit down lunch and some good old-fashioned conversation.

The Nottinghamshire countryside also offers the perfect escape for your old man to relive his heydays. Get out on the green and take a stroll around sixty acres of parkland. Admire the architectural beauty of the house that was once home to Lord Byron and explore the network of eight different lakes, a marina and a ruined church.
