Alright folks, here we are, talking about a day that has a solemn responsibility to celebrate every dad joke, every spider-killed-in-the-bathroom, and every grilling masterpiece. Yes, we're diving into the history of National Daddy Day.
It's national daddy day on the 22nd June.
If you think about it, it's a bit of a surprise that 'National Daddy Day' isn't as prominent on our calendars as, say, Sock Day or National Ice Cream Sandwich Day. But, with 1415 mentions online, it's clearly a day that is slowly, but surely, making its own gruff dad-like presence felt on the internet.
The highest mentions for National Daddy Day were clocked in on June 22, 2020. Now, all you eagle-eyed readers out there might point out that this happens to coincide suspiciously close to Father's Day. And you know what? We can't fault your detective skills. National Daddy Day, by and large, falls around Father's Day, providing an extra layer of appreciation for dads around the world.
So why exactly do we pay homage to dear old Dad on this day? Top marks if you said it's because dads rock. This day serves as a zesty reminder of the important role fathers play in our lives - whether it's their unending arsenal of 'so-bad-they-are-good' dad jokes or their uncanny skills at being the family’s bug exterminator. The celebration is an annual nod to the patience, strength (the BBQ-kind too), and love that fathers exemplify.
Celebrating this day might involve indulging Dad with his favorite meal (we're picturing a steak here, because clichés exist for a reason), letting him win at Monopoly for a change, or simply declaring your love with a hearty round of applause after his latest pun. But however you choose to commemorate it, National Daddy Day should essentially be about expressing gratitude, love, and painting a broad grin on Dad’s face.
