We have an unending list of special days to celebrate, but this is the time of the year when we celebrate the most important and best man of our life-’Fathers’.
Gone is the time when fathers were considered to be secondary caretakers in a child's life. The super dads have rolled up their sleeves to raise a kid single-handedly if needed. However, it would be almost implausible to be thankful enough for everything that fathers do for us. So, we have a golden opportunity to honor our father or any important male figure in life on this Father's Day, which happens to be on the third Sunday of June every year. This year Father's Day will be observed on 19th June, 2022.
But, before proceeding, let's first understand the reason behind celebrating International Father's Day.
Why Do We Celebrate International Father's Day?

She proposed to have a dedicated day for fathers as we celebrate mother's day in the United States (US). Sonora requested a day for fathers by considering her dad's immense dedication and affection towards the family. She got success after all the efforts, and Washington State celebrated the first father's day on 19th June 1910. Later, Richard Nixon, President of the US, declared father’s day as a national holiday.
