Halloween party ideas 2015

In Hmar society the father is head of the family, but often we forget the sacrifice of our fathers and the roles they have played in shaping our lives.

It is 'very strange' and even rarer for a male child to even say 'Thank you, father' to their dads. Hmar girls are more open and even closer to their dads, while boys try to act 'manly'. You too might have witnessed that many boys after attaining a certain age-group, they would simply stop calling their dads 'Pa or papa (father)' until their deaths.

For many of us who have been shy or reserved, it's time we let ourselves free from inhibitions. Father's Day gives us the opportunity to show and express our love and care to this man, who deserves our support most at least once a year!

The Father's Day will be celebrated on 21st June 2009 and don't forget to make this day special day more special!

Here's History of Father's Day (from wikipedia.org)
The first observance of Father's Day is believed to have been held on July 5, 1908 in a church located in Fairmont, West Virginia, by Dr. Robert Webb of West Virginia at the Williams Memorial Methodist Episcopal Church South of Fairmont. The church still exists under the name of Central United Methodist Church.

Sonora Smart Dodd of Washington thought independently of the holiday one Sunday in 1909 while listening to a Mother's Day sermon at the Central Methodist Episcopal Church at Spokane,[3] and she arranged a tribute for her father on June 19, 1910. She was the first to solicit the idea of having an official Father's Day observance to honor all fathers.

It took many years to make the holiday official. In spite of support from the YWCA, the YMCA and churches, it ran the risk of disappearing from the calendar. Where Mother's Day was met with enthusiasm, Father's Day was met with laughter. The holiday was gathering attention slowly, but for the wrong reasons. It was the target of much satire, parody and derision, including jokes from the local newspaper Spokesman-Review. Many people saw it as just the first step in filling the calendar with mindless promotions like "Grandparents' Day", "Professional Secretaries' Day", etc., all the way down to "National Clean Your Desk Day."

A bill was introduced in 1913, US President Calvin Coolidge supported the idea in 1924,[citation needed] and a national committee was formed in the 1930s by trade groups in order to legitimize the holiday. It was made a federal holiday when President Lyndon Johnson issued a proclamation in 1966.
