Father's Day

13 June 2011

Father's Day is a celebration of fathers which first started in the early twentieth century to complement Mother's Day in celebrating fatherhood. Father's Day is celebrated on a variety of dates worldwide and typically involves gift-giving, family-oriented activities and basically treating your Dad to a wonderful day to remember.

The first ever Father's Day took place in Fairmont, West Virginia on July 5, 1908. It was organized by a Mrs. Grace Golden Clayton, who wanted to celebrate the lives of the 210 fathers who had been lost in the Monongah Mining disaster several months earlier in West Virginia in 1907. It's possible that Clayton was influenced by the first celebration of Mother's Day that same year, just a few miles away. Clayton chose the Sunday nearest to the birthday of her recently deceased father.

In addition to Father's Day, International Men's Day is celebrated in some countries on 19th November for men and boys who are not Dads.

Well Wicked offer a massive selection of gifts that are suitable for Fathers Day. Take your pick from amazing animal experiences and barmy bungee jumping to beautiful ballooning and wonderful wine tasting. Or treat your Dad to a mens pamper day, golf experience or sky dive. There is something for everyone and certainly that special gift perfect for your Dad!
