Celebrating Father's Day 2021

Father's Day is celebrated throughout the world to honour and thank your father, dad, pa, step dad, dad to be, pet dad or a second dad. In the UK we celebrate this special day on the third Sunday of June, however, some countries celebrate their dads different dates. Father's Day complements Mother's Day, the celebration of mothers, and typically families spend Father's Day and Mother's Day together. Traditionally dads receive gifts like scrummy Gnaw Chocolate Father's Day gifts sent with a personalised message from their sons, daughters and even pets and the whole family will enjoy a Sunday lunch or meal together at home or at your dad's favourite restaurant.

History of Fathers Day

There are some suggestions that the idea of Father's Day may originate in pagan sun worship. Some branches of paganism see the Sun as the father of the universe. Since the summer solstice occurs around the same time of year as Father's Day, some people see a link between the two.
The idea of a special day to honour fathers and celebrate fatherhood was introduced from the United States. A woman called Sonora Smart Dodd was inspired by the American Mother's Day celebrations to plan a day to honour fathers. Father's Day has been celebrated in June since 1910 in America. The celebrations in the United Kingdom are thought to have been inspired by the American custom of Father's Day. This is in contrast to Mother's Day, which has a very different history in the United States and the United Kingdom.

How do people celebrate Father’s Day?

On Father's Day, many people make a special effort to visit their father. They often take or send cards and gifts. Common Father's Day gifts are ties, socks, underwear, sweaters, slippers and other items of clothing but in the squirrels view chocolate is the best gift to gift a chocolate loving dad. Even if you can’t be with your dad for whatever reason we can send your dad Gnaw chocolate love with Father’s Day chocolate gifts delivered directly to this door…or through his door with Father’s Day letterbox Chocolates.
Many Father's Day gifts have slogans such as "The World's Best Dad", "For My Father" or just a simple "Love You Dad"on them. Personalised gifts even more popular for Father's Day which is why our Dads’ Chocolate Boxes and Father’s Day Create Your Own Hampers have a fun postcard for you to write a special message for your dad. 
In the days and weeks before Father's Day, many schools, Sunday schools and children's organisations help their pupils to prepare a handmade card or gift for their father. Mothers and other family members may help children to make personalised gifts, with drawings made by the children.
Other Father's Day gift ideas include humorous novelty items, sporty gifts or extravagant experience days such as a helicopter ride or racing car lesson. Another tradition is to serve breakfast in bed for dad, for a real treat. Families gather around the dinner table and enjoy a Sunday dinner cooked by mother's or children- dad isn't supposed to lift a finger all day. Alternatively, it's also common to take father out for dinner to a pub or restaurant.
