History of Father's Day in USA
美国父亲节历史

Father's Day festival as we celebrate today traces its history to United States of America. The idea of observing a day in honor of father was conceptualized by Ms Sonora Smart Dodd, a loving daughter from Spokane. It so happened that Sonora attended a Mother's Day Sermon in 1909 and she was struck with the noble idea that society must observe a day to honor the important contribution made by father in the raising of children.
我们今天庆祝的父亲节历史要追溯到美国。设立一个特殊的日子来纪念父亲是由多德夫人提出的,一位来自斯波坎的善良女儿。1909年她参加完教会的母亲节感恩礼拜后,被这个想法深深感动,便萌生出设立一个节日感谢父亲在养育儿女过程中做出的重要贡献。

Encouraged by the love of her father, William Smart, a civil war veteran who single-handedly raised her along with her five siblings after the death of her mother, Sonora worked hard to make her concept a reality. The noble idea of celebrating Father's Day soon spread across the nation. Father's Day was recognized by a Joint Resolution of Congress in 1956. Finally, in 1972 President Nixon established Father's Day as a permanent national day of observance on the third Sunday of June.
受她父亲,一名参加过南北战争,在妻子过世后,独自一人承担起抚养、教育六个孩子的重任的威廉•斯马特鼓励,多德努力让想法成为现实。庆祝父亲节的好想法很快传遍全国。1956年,两院联合决议承认父亲节。1972年,美国总统尼克松签署正式文件,将每年6月的第三个星期日定为全美国的父亲节,并成为美国永久性的纪念日。

Father’s Day Celebrations in USA
美国父亲节庆祝方式

The day is observed as a time for family reunion in families, as children who are staying away from families take time out to celebrate the day with their father. Indulging daddy with breakfast in bed and gifts like cards, flowers, chocolates and neckties is the traditional way of celebrating Father Day in USA.
这一天对于一些背井离乡的孩子们来说是团圆的一天,他们会回到家和父亲一起庆祝。传统的请祝福方式有:将早饭给父亲送上床、送礼物如明信片、鲜花、巧克力和领带等。

Massive popularity of Father‘s Day Festival has led to extensive commercialization of the occasion. Critics rue that rigorous marketing campaign has spoiled the noble idea of honoring fathers on Father's Day as many observe the day by performing the mere formality of presenting gifts to dad. Others, however, see the positive side of commercialization and say that it in fact helps to raise awareness about the day and encourages children to honor their father.
父亲节的广泛普及使得这个节日被严重商业化。批评家们强烈指出这种商业化冲淡了人们向父亲表达感激的初心,因为很多人只是形式上送礼物给父亲。而还有其他一些人看到了商业化的另一面影响,觉得这回让更多人知晓这一天的重要性并能提醒他们应向父亲表示感激。
