Happy Father’s Day!

       Each year, we celebrate Father’s Day here in theUnited States(as well as about 50 other countries) on the third Sunday in June.  But do you know the history of this holiday?  Actually, it depends on the country.  For example,Taiwancelebrates Father’s Day on August 8, the eighth day of the eighth month.  In South Korea, they celebrate Parents’ Day each year on May 8 (did you also know that we also have a Parents’ Day here in the US, signed into law in 1994 by President Clinton and observed on the fourth Sunday of July?).  The Father’s Day as we celebrate it was first celebrated in a church inWest Virginiain 1908, reportedly to honor the 361 men who were killed in a deadly mine explosion the year before.  Although it is highly commercialized today (lots and lots of cards and meals), the original intent was to honor our fathers, living or not.  Please keep that in mind, and enjoy your (his) day!
