Father’s Day – A Holiday to Honor Fatherhood

0

Father’s Day is a holiday observed in the United States to honor fathers, fatherhood, and other paternal figures like grandfathers, stepfathers, and uncles. It is observed on the third Sunday in June.

父亲节是在美国遵循的节日,以纪念父亲,父亲和其他祖父像祖父,继父和叔叔那样的人。它在六月的第三个星期日被观察到。

In the early 20th century there was a mining accident in West Virginia that killed almost 400 men. A push for a day to remember the men killed, who were mostly husbands and fathers, was the start of a push for a national holiday. This was in 1908. It wasn’t until 1972, however, that Father’s Day was recognized by law as a national holiday. This is due in part to the fact that people were resistant to what they saw as another overly invented holiday meant to just make people spend money. It wasn’t seen as a way to remember the dead or to honor living fathers and father figures. People weren’t entirely wrong. Organizations representing men’s clothing manufacturers put in a lot of money for the holiday to become popular.

20世纪初,西弗吉尼亚州发生了一起采矿事故,造成近400人丧生。为了纪念遇难者,他们大多是丈夫和父亲,要求一天的努力是推动国定假日的开始。那是在1908年。直到1972年,父亲节才被法律确​​认为国定假日。这部分是由于人们抵制他们认为是另一个过度发明的假期的事实,该假期只是为了使人们花钱。但这并不是记住死者或尊敬在世的父亲和父亲形象的一种方式。人们并不完全错。代表男装制造商的组织为假期受欢迎而投入了大量资金。

Like Mother’s Day, it indeed is a holiday that has become highly commercialized. There are greeting cards to mark the day, and stores advertise gifts for Dad. These gifts traditionally include electronics, ties, and tools. In schools, children often make cards and other gifts. Father’s Day is not a federal holiday even though it is widely celebrated. Some of the ways Father’s Day is celebrated is with meals, especially barbecues since the holiday falls at the beginning of the summer.

像母亲节一样,这确实是一个假期,已经高度商业化。有贺卡来纪念这一天,商店还为爸爸做广告礼物。这些礼物传统上包括电子产品,领带和工具。在学校,孩子们经常制作卡片和其他礼物。父亲节虽然广受赞誉,但不是联邦假日。父亲节的庆祝方式包括用餐,特别是烧烤,因为假期是在夏季初。
