When is Father’s Day 2022?

Father’s Day falls on Sunday June 19th this year (2022) . It is always on the third Sunday of the month and is earlier than it was last year. It’s an American invention created by Sonora Smart Dodd from Washington, whose father brought her up alongside five siblings. Her mother died in childbirth. She had the idea after listening to a sermon about Mother’s Day. Sonora suggested June as it was the month of her dad’s birthday. The day wasn’t officially recognised until 1966. It became a national holiday in the States in 1972.

Father’s Day was originally a religious holiday, but now, it’s become a global day of gratitude to dads. It’s a time when DIY Fathers Day cards are made in schools, kids start Googling When is Father’s Day? and sales of Father’s Day funny cards soar. Really, there are no rules.
