Why We Celebrate Father's Day
“Anyone who tells you fatherhood is the greatest thing that can happen to you, they are understating it.” ―Mike Myers
Father's are just as much important as mothers. This is a well known fact, but it is also a lot of the time, an underappreciated one.
Father's play the second lead role in the play of life. I mean, without your dad you technically wouldn't be here, so why is it that their holiday is left at second best? According to History.com, fathers did not meet with the same enthusiasm–perhaps because, as one florist explained, “fathers haven’t the same sentimental appeal that mothers have.”
Though, the image set by many portraying father's as not being as endearing as their mother's, but this big macho type who is only around to play catch. We'd like to shed light on some of the real reason's father's should be celebrated.
Father's are there to give a different kind of nurturing, just as a mother's care would leave a different impact on you. Your father is the reason you learn to be resilient and persistent. Father's teach you to protect those who are closest to you with all of your strength. Father's can be your sense of security during a tough situation. Father's are there to hold your hand as you grow and then show you how to let go when you're ready to make your next step in life.
Father's are there to give you all of the unconditional love you deserve in life. For these reasons and many more, we not only choose to celebrate father's on this coming father's day, but everyday before and after.
Happy Father's Day to all of the Father's out there.
