Usually celebrated on the third Sunday of June, the history of Father's day can be traced back to the Babylonian era about 4000 years ago. Legend has it that, a young lad named Elmesu carved a message for his Babylonian father on a clay card wishing him health and happiness. The modern version of Father's day originated in the USA owing to the efforts of a loving daughter Ms. Sonora Louise Smart Dodd. When she became familiar with the concept of a special day dedicated to honoring mothers, she felt strongly about a similar day for celebrating fatherhood. Sonora's father Mr. William Jackson Smart, a civil war veteran raised her and five other siblings single-handedly post her mother's death, when she was 16. Inspired by Mrs. Anna Jarvis's struggle to promote Mother's Day, she began a vigorous campaign to bring the father's of the USA the recognition they deserved. Though there was initial hesitation, she gained the support of YMCA and Spokane Ministerial Association. Spokane celebrated its first Father's Day on June 19, 1910.

Often people have a host of questions to ask but none to turn to regarding many aspects of celebrating father's day with their real dad, step-dad, father-in-law, etc. We decided to answer some of them to the best of our abilities.
1. We have just been blessed with a little cherub, and our baby is too young to appreciate Father's Day. Should I buy my husband a gift on his behalf?
Ans. Hell yeah!! You definitely should invest in a great gift for the guy who made it possible. Consider gifting him a Dad Saddle that both he and the baby can enjoy in the years to come.
2. How should I celebrate Father's day with my step-father and biological father?
Well, if you are blessed with two father figures, we recommend spending time with both on this special day and make them feel pampered and cared for. Plan a nice barbeque or fishing session with the dudes and make them smile wide with a King of The Day Inflatable Crown each!
3. My father is no longer with us. How do I honor his memory?
Continuing to care for your father when he is no longer around, is a spectacular idea indeed. We suggest you do something he was passionate about. Did he love animals? Go adopt or feed a stray dog. Did he love keeping the fence sparkly white? Paint it for him. Also, do remember to pamper your mom, he would have done that now, wouldn't he?
