How Father's Day Is Celebrated in 15 Countries Around the World
In the United States, Father’s Day was originally created to honor a veteran and single father of 14 children. Since 1910 its been celebrated annually on the third Sunday of June, because ministers in the early 1900s wanted to be sure they had enough time between Mother’s Day and Father’s Day to write two exceptionally good sermons for services held on the holidays.
And while we may be most familiar with our own traditions (like giving Father's Day cards and hosting a Father's Day brunch), the holiday isn’t just celebrated in the United States. In other countries, the holiday is celebrated on different days and in many different ways. Here’s how Father’s Day is celebrated in 15 countries around the world.
