“Fathers are the first friend you make and the last love of your life.”
This year in honour of Father’s Day (20 June 2021) and Fathers everywhere, we are sharing our recent recording of Yellow by Coldplay.
The history of Father’s Day
Unlike Mother’s Day, which has pretty somber origins, Father’s Day has relatively light roots—and was actually created by a woman. Back in 1909, Sonora Smart Dodd tried to establish an official equivalent to Mother’s Day for male parents. She went around to local businesses to gather support for her idea, and on June 19, 1910, the state of Washington celebrated the first-ever Father’s Day.
