And on June 17, 2018 ... We are celebrating our darling dads! ♡
But by the way, since when has Father's Day been around?
The contemporary idea of adding a Father's Day to that of the Mothers comes to us in 1910 from the United States. Father's Day is then institutionalized as a secular feast and fixed for the 3rd Sunday in June.
In France, on the other hand, its appearance is linked to a purely commercial event.
It is indeed the Breton manufacturer of Flaminaire lighters which in 1949, history of boosting its sales in June, a slack period, decides to launch on the US model, a "special Papas" day and asks its tobacconists to 'display the slogan: " Our dads told us, for Father's Day, they all want a Flaminaire! "
Successful wink which made people smile at the time but which would of course be completely unthinkable today!
The commercial origin of this festival has made the State grumble, which ends up making it official in 1952 by a decree which retains the rule of the 3rd Sunday in June.
And you, how will you celebrate your Dad on June 17th?
- Will you dress her their favorite ée neck like Thai children do?
- Will you light small campfires that your hero will have to leap over as is the custom in South America?
Or would you prefer to give her a gift that is 100% love, 100% soft for her skin ...?
You are right!
