Father’s Day became more prominent in the 20th century, when it has been added as a holiday in the US, to correspond with celebration of motherhood on Mother’s Day.

As you probably know, it all started with Mother’s Day, which was promoted by Anna Jarvis, and followed by the first celebration a “Father’s Day” on July 5, 1908.  The celebration and idea to celebrate not just mothers, but also fathers, has quickly spread throughout the whole US and to the rest of the world.
