Fathers Day is celebrated on various days around the world. The Father's Day celebration is observed on the third Sunday in June in the United States. Whether you call him Dad, Father, Pop, or any father figure, the observances are to honor this special man in your life. They say any man can be a father, but it takes a special person t be called Dad. So, this holiday is to honor and celebrate this male individual.
Sonora Dodd was raised by her father and in 1909 she set up a day in June to honor her dad. She was the first person to petition for having an official Father's day ceremony to honor fathers everywhere. The ideas took quite a few years to become official. People felt that it was just a step in filling the calendar with useless holidays. It wasn’t until 1966 that it was made a federal holiday in the United States.
Since men don’t wear creative feminine pins or necklaces, most of these designs can be fused into platters, bowls, or other projects such as belt buckles, letter openers, business card holders or desktop organizers. Determine ahead of time what project you would like to make and obtain the needed materials before starting. There are many different types of molds that can be used for these projects, or create and design your own mold.
