The history of Father's Day

It's nice to celebrate our dads, so much so that we don't need an excuse. But do you know why we celebrate it?

While Mother's Day is a Christian holiday in the UK, Father's Day actually stems from the US, from a rather sombre affair. The first Father's Day took place in 1908 in West Virginia when a church held a special sermon honouring fathers after 362 men were killed in a mining accident.

In 1909, a woman called Sonora Smart Dodd petitioned to see Father's Day recognised as a national day to honour her father, and all other dads out there, and the Washington state celebrated its first official Father's Day in 1910.

Now, countries across the globe celebrate the day, each with a different date and different traditions. In the UK, it's become popular to buy ties, socks, booze and sentimental keepsakes, but tbh, we'd pick useful gadgets for dad every day of the week.
