The origin of Father's Day goes back to the early 20th century and was primarily to compliment the strong Mother's Day tradition that was already in place. The credit for the official creation of a day for Father's was given to an American lady, Sonora Dodd who was raised by a single parent and was the driving force behind the push to have father's formally recognised.

The giving of Father's Day Gifts is as time honoured as the establishment of the day itself and while the gifts have become bigger and better, the thought behind them remains very much the same as it always has. It's all about the celebration of fatherhood and the influence of Dad's as role models and the paternal bonds that stay strong during our lives.

In many countries in the world, Father's Day is celebrated on the third Sunday in June but in Australia, we celebrate our Dads and all they stand for on the first Sunday in September each year. Just why Australia chooses to have a different date for than the rest of the world remains a complete mystery (even good old Google, can't give us the answer) but I like to think that it's because it's the first Sunday in spring and that it has something to do with new life, love and warmth.

Showing our appreciation on Father's Day by modern standards is in recognition of all the love and support offered by a Father to his children and for all those Saturday mornings at netball, softball, cricket and football and for all the laughter and happy times shared between a man and his children.

When all is said and done, we probably shouldn't need a special day to thank people who are close to us, but with our busy lives we can quite often forget to say what and how we feel about our Dad's and Father's Day is there to prompt us a little to stop and appreciate the greatest things in life.

How will you reward your Dad this Father's Day? Will you take him to the football, buy him lunch or will you get the family together and shower him with Father's Day gifts that have been carefully thought out and lovingly wrapped.

Write down the date (1st September 2013) and start planning your Dad's Day celebration and give your big guy a day he will remember because our Dad's are our Father's Day gifts.
