Celebrate father

Father’s Day occurs on the second Sunday in November; and has, just like Mother’s Day, been created after the American model. It was initiated by a certain Mrs. John Bruce Dodd from the U.S. She wanted to honour her widower father, who alone raised seven children. Father’s Day came to Sweden in 1931, when it followed in the commercial footsteps of Mother’s Day. In 1949 a Nordic committee was formed by businessmen with the intention of promoting the custom; this hints at the economic importance of holidays in commerce. However that may be, it is still a great reason to show dad that you care about him.
