fathers' dayDid you know that Fathers’ Day was invented by American Mrs. Sonora Smart Dodd who wanted to honour her father, a veteran who had, as a single parent, raised his six children. The first Father’s Day was celebrated on June 19, 1910?! Read more here.

Traditionally fathers should be given the gift of white or red roses. The rose is the official flower for Fathers’ Day. Wearing a red rose signifies a living father, while a white one represents deceased father. And did you also know that, surprisingly, the trusty slipper gift isn’t the most popular Father’s Day present – it’s actually a tie.
