On Father’s Day, we set aside time to honor our dads, granddads, stepdads, and the other special people who fill fatherly roles in our lives. Our dads work hard to provide for us and take care of us, always being there for us and guiding us through the years. We are grateful for an opportunity to create great desserts for Father’s Day and show our appreciation for these irreplaceable men.
History of Father’s Day
In the U.S., there are conflicting reports of where and how the first Father’s Day celebration came to be. It is known, however, that one of the earliest Father’s Day celebrations took place in Spokane, Washington, on June 19, 1910. Fourteen years later, President Calvin Coolidge recommended that Father’s Day be made a national holiday. In 1966, President Lyndon Johnson decided to observe Father’s Day on the third Sunday of June. However, it was not until the early 1970s, during the presidency of Richard Nixon, that Father’s Day became officially recognized.
Around the world, many places celebrate Father’s Day on different dates throughout the year. However, regardless of the day, the tradition of honoring fathers and father figures remains consistent.
