We all know when it is right? Father’s Day — the first Sunday of September, when we honour the fathers and father figures in our lives. Nobody seems to know exactly when Father’s Day was first celebrated in Australia but there are some references to it in the early 1930’s. It was officially designated as the first Sunday in September through the Commonwealth in 1964.
There was no official reason was given for the choice of date, but it is a widely held belief that September was chosen for commercial benefits. It fits almost perfectly between Mother’s Day and Christmas in a calendar year, giving shoppers plenty of time to shop for everyone.
Forget the jocks and socks this Father’s Day. Celebrate Dad with a hand-picked selection of our chocolate and cookie treats.
