Father’s Day is fast approaching and many of us are trying to think of the ideal gift for the man who has everything. Well the good news is that we have the perfect solution! But let’s look at that in a minute.
Let’s first take a look at why we should bother in the first place? What does Father’s Day mean? Is it just more rampant commercialism?
There are various supposed origins of Father’s Day. In fact the Catholic feast day of St Joseph has been used in Europe to celebrate fatherhood from the Middle Ages. But Father’s Day as we know it seemed to have begun in 1910 in Spokane, Washington, where parishioners desired to have a day - similar to Mother’s Day - to honour fathers.
So, Father’s Day is the idea opportunity to say thank you to our dads. Each one is unique and our life story with them is also unique.
Have a think now: what did you learn from your father? Maybe you have a life passion that is something he passed onto you? Maybe some practical skill that you are thankful for every day? Or maybe there is some aspect of his character or personality that you also find yourself doing.
Just for a bit of fun, we’ve been asking friends and family about what people have learned from their fathers. Here are just a few of the responses they came up with when asked the question “What did you learn from your father”:
The above are just a few examples and we’re sure that you have many more of your own. Various other friends have quoted things that they definitely didn’t - or wouldn’t want to - learn from their fathers. Things including cooking, fashion sense, ability to tell jokes - and of course “Dad Dancing”!
But on the whole it seems that Father’s Day is a good time to reflect and be thankful for all that our fathers mean to us and all that we have learned from them.
