Make Father’s Day Special this year!

Give him a Priceless father’s day Gift – A Lotto ticket!

Father’s day is early morning tip towing in the kitchen while you’re making coffee for your father. Entering your parent’s room quietly and placing the coffee mug on the bedside table with the card you made at school, also accompanied with a present. It doesn’t have to be something big, a small treat like a chocolate bar or Turkish delight would do the trick.

Then after drinking the coffee, reading the card and maybe enjoying some of his treat. Everyone would get dressed up and go somewhere to have a special dinner in honour of the father figure, the rock of the family.

Surprise your dad this father’s day with a Euromillions Lotto ticket!

Father’s Day was created in the United States in the early 20th century in order to establish a Mother’s Day equivalent for the male parent. The idea started when a sermon on July 5 1908 was held in honour of 362 men who had died in a mining disaster at the Fairmont coal company mines in Monongah. 250 of those men were fathers, leaving a thousand children fatherless. This sermon celebrated the lives that were lost in this accident and offered compassion to those who suffered great loss.

This was however only a onetime thing, but a woman named Sonora Smart Dodd tried to establish an official father’s day the following year. Even though the governor of the United States of Washington proclaimed the nation’s first father’s day on July 19 1910, it was not until 1972 that the day became a nationwide holiday.

Therefore Father’s Day might seem today as just another advertising technique or as a vague childhood memory, but actually it all started as an act to show the fathers of the world that they too were important. That they along with the mothers of the world were essential to the upbringing of children. It’s a day to celebrated the importance of the role they play and to make them realize that importance.
