Fathers’ Day – June 18th 2017 – the facts!

Did you know that we should really celebrate Fathers’ day on March 19th?

St Joseph’s Day has been used to celebrate Fatherhood since medieval times but the modern ‘tradition’ of Fathers’ day on the third Sunday of June started in the US  in 1908 when Grace Clayton suggested to her local pastor that it was time that men got a special day as well.

It is not known who was the first Father to receive socks as a gift on Fathers’ Day….
