Fathers are essential to the family unit. In many cases, fathers are the breadwinners and financial providers of the family. Some father’s are advisory, and some are just there to support and love. They may be stay at home parents or working dads but are always there to do their duties. Father’s Day is the day to give them the appreciation that they so clearly deserve.
After the success of Mother’s Day, Father’s Day observances began to appear around the United States and world, starting in 1907 after the Monograph Mining Disaster killed 361 men. A day was established to honor those men and remember the children that were left behind.
