Father’s Day was first celebrated on July 5, 1908, in honor of 362 men who had died in the previous December’s explosions at the Fairmont Coal Company mines in Monongah, West Virginia.

 

It was meant to be a one-time commemoration.

 

This year Father’s Day is on June 20, 2021. On Father’s Day we celebrate and thank fathers for their sacrifices and love for their families. 

 

Many fathers are working from home currently. They may need some new gadgets to improve their home office. Or they may want to get out of the house and do something fun. 

 

Here are some ideas to celebrate with them.
