Father's day is just around the corner, and while some people may have gifts sorted, others might still be on the hunt for something special.In less than a week's time on June 16, which occurs on a Sunday, Father's Day 2024 will take place - the same as the US.

And if you want to know next year's date to be extra prepared, it will happen on June 15, 2025.According to Time, the origins of Father’s Day was proposed around the same time as Mother's Day in the early 20th century.

It was initiated by Sonora Louise Smart Dodd, who sought to honour her father, William Smart, a Civil War veteran who single-handedly raised six children following his wife's death during childbirth.The National Father's Day Committee notes the inaugural Father's Day celebration took place in Dodd's hometown of Spokane, Washington, in 1910.

The reason for it taking place in June is because Smart's birthday was on June 5.The tradition of celebrating this day spread to other countries, including the United Kingdom.
