We all look up to that one person in our lives, who is the nearest to us and an inspiration like no other. A father is not just a provider to the family, but a role model we all look up to with the hope that we imbibe at least some of the qualities he possesses.

From supporting their kids’ passion, travelling to different tournaments with them, to cooking specialised food among others, there is an entire spectrum of support systems that fathers have created for their children. They are the supermen of chess, and rightly so for their children.

With the 19th of June being celebrated as Father’s Day, this is a very special day to show your hero how much you love and care for him. 

There are the traditional gifts which people tend to go with to try and play safe, but this year how about you gift a father’s day chess board to that special person in your life.

Let’s check a few facts before we delve deeper:

Father’s Day Origins

While Mother’s Day was officially recognized in 1914, and duly so, it took a while for the other half to get a day for themselves.

In 1966, President Lyndon Johnson signed the executive order declaring the third Sunday of June as Father’s Day, but it was under the Presidency of Richard Nixon that congress passed an act declaring Father’s Day as a national holiday in 1972.

The idea of Father’s Day was proposed by Sonora Smart Dodd from Spokane, Washington state. Raised by her father who also raised her five siblings single-handedly, she came up with the idea in 1909. 

The widely publicised events in Spokane struck a chord that reached all the way to Washington, D.C., and Sonora’s celebration put the idea on the path to becoming a national holiday much later in 1972. Sonora passed six years later.
