People across the globe are ready to celebrate Father's Day this year too.

Everyone has their own way to celebrate this significant day, some might give presents or throw a  party for father's day celebration.

Social media will be full of pictures & quotes of father-child relations on  this day.

Each year, Father’s Day is celebrated on the 3rd Sunday of June. That means this year the date for the  celebration is June 19.

But why do we celebrate it? Here's the reason:

The concept of Father’s Day traces its roots to American Civil War veteran William Jackson Smart’s daughter Sonora.

Sonora was raised by her father after her mother's demise. So she wanted to celebrate his father's efforts but there wasn't any day marked for fathers like mother's day.

So, she approached the Spokane Ministerial Alliance & asked them to recognise Smart’s birthday, June 5,  as Father’s Day to honour fathers  across the world.

However, they later settled on the 3rd Sunday of the month.

Soon, Indians too started celebrating this day to pay tribute to their  father's efforts & love.
