Father’s Day

Happy Father’s Day to all Dads everywhere! We enjoyed revisiting last year’s wonderful poem/card by our daughters to their Dad. This year’s celebration is quiet with only one daughter home, one living several hours drive away, and the third out of the country on vacation. We are also remembering and missing our own fathers, gone many years now.

According to Wikipedia’s history of Father’s Day, it became an official day in USA in 1972. I notice also that Father’s Day is not celebrated the third Sunday of June everywhere, for instance in Finland it is in November.
