Father?s Day is a fairly new celebration in Britain compared with Mother?s Day, which has been a very popular and well celebrated festival in the UK for a very long time.
Father?s Day was first celebrated in America, and it came from the actions of a man named William Smart. He used to be in the army during the US Civil War and his wife died when giving birth to their sixth child. He raised six children alone without marrying again, which was unusual back in those days.
His daughter, Sonora Dodd, realized when she was an adult what her father had done for his children. It was in the early 1900s and she was actually at church one day, listening to a talk on Mother?s Day.She thought there should be a Father?s Day celebration. And so the tradition was born, on the third Sunday every June, close to the anniversary(纪念日) of Sonora?s father?s death.
Britain took the idea of Father?s Day from the American celebration and it has been celebrated officially since the 1970s. Father?s Day is never quite such a big event in business as Mother?s Day, probably because it hasn?t existed for so long.
