Today is Fathers' Day in the U.S.A.  It became an official holiday in the 1970's, but people began thinking about a day to honor fathers as early as 1907, and some began celebrating it in June 1910.  It is celebrated on the third Sunday in the month of June.  For more information click here and click here.  Then click here for a chart showing the different dates Father's Day is celebrated in countries around the world.  What did you learn today?
