Father’s Day is held on the third Sunday of June in England and the rest of the United Kingdom
Although it is thought that the idea originated in the USA and has been officially celebrated there on the third Sunday in June since 1966, a customary day for the celebration of fatherhood in Catholic Europe is known to date back to at least the Middle Ages.
It is thought that the American celebration of Fathers Day was adopted by England and the rest of Britain after 1973 when Richard Nixon President of the USA made it a public holiday in America and has grown in recognition through Britain since then.
