Father’s Day

Yesterday was Father’s Day. This special day was first celebrated in the U.S. in 1910, two years after the first Mother’s Day. Ms. Dodd worked very hard to create a special day for her father to thank him for raising her and her five brothers after their mother died. Now Father’s Day is celebrated on the third Sunday of June in many countries. People usually give their fathers presents and spend time with them. How did you celebrate Father’s Day?

My other daughter, who lives in the U.S., couldn’t be with me, so we chatted online instead.  (126 words)
