Father's Day: Celebrating dad bods, dad jokes, & everything in between! 🥳

Father’s Day is this weekend, & it's time to start planning how to make it extra special for the dads in our lives. Whether they’re our biological fathers, stepdads, adoptive dads, granddads, or simply father figures who have been there for us, today is their day to shine! ✨

A quick history lesson (don’t worry, it's interesting!)

Did you know that Father’s Day has been around for over a century? It all started in the USA with a woman named Sonora Smart Dodd, who wanted to honour her dad—a Civil War veteran who raised six kids on his own. Inspired by Mother’s Day, she thought dads deserved a day too. The first official Father’s Day was celebrated on 19 June 1910, in Spokane, Washington. But it wasn’t until 1972 that it became a nationwide holiday in the US, thanks to President Nixon. Pretty cool, right? 🤗 Today, Father’s Day is celebrated globally, each country adding their own unique traditions to the mix to honour fathers and father figures everywhere!

The magic of dad bods & dad jokes

Let’s face it, dads are known for a couple of things that we just have to celebrate dad bods & dad jokes. 🤣

Dad Bods: You know that perfect blend of comfort & cuddliness. Dad bods might not have the six-pack abs of a fitness guru, but they bring a special kind of huggable awesomeness that reminds us of all the love & care dads give!"!

Dad Jokes: Yeah, we all can't help eyerolls, ‘cos no Father’s Day is complete without a few classic dad jokes. These puns & one-liners are the ultimate icebreakers even if they make us groan!! Here are a few to get the ball rolling:

  • Why did the scarecrow win an award? Because he was outstanding in his field! 😜
  • What do you call fake spaghetti? An impasta! 🙃
  • How do you organise a space party? You planet! 🙄

How to make Father’s Day unforgettable

Father’s Day is the perfect time to create some awesome memories - dad's style! Here are some ideas to celebrate:

  1. Backyard BBQ: Get the grill going & have a family cookout. Let dad show off his BBQ skills while everyone enjoys delicious food & great company. Also pre-warn everyone it's his day, laughing is essential with his jokes & no groaning allowed... it’s his day!! 😝
  2. Outdoor adventure: Plan a day of activities you know your dad loves. It's his day so whatever he wants to do, you do! It's all about quality time together in his world!
  3. DIY gifts: Get crafty & make something unique! A personalised photo album, a hand-painted mug, or a custom playlist of his fave songs can be the perfect touch.
  4. Heartfelt letter: Sometimes, the best gifts are words from the heart. Put pen to paper & write a letter sharing your love, fave memories, & how much he means to you – you may even have some tears shed, so be sure there are tissues at the ready!
  5. Cook a special meal: Surprise dad with breakfast in bed or a fancy dinner. Even if it’s not perfect, the effort put in will mean everything to him!

            Cheers to all dads!

            Let’s not forget, Father’s Day isn’t just for biological dads. It’s a day to honour anyone who has stepped into a fatherly role. So, here’s to all the dads out there. Cheersies to you all for your patience, guidance, bear hugs & life lessons. Cheersies for the sacrifices you’ve made, the jokes you’ve shared & the endless love you’ve given & continue to give. You are the heroes we look up to, & today, we celebrate you.

            Happy Father’s Day! 🎉👨‍👧‍👦
