Father´s Day originated in the United States in 1909 and through time
has come to be recognized in other countries as well, and Spain is no
exception. This is a day not only to acknowledge fathers but men who
represent father figures as well.
However, within the context of the Catholic faith, this day honors San
José (St. Joseph) which falls on March 19th.
The day is generally spent giving fathers a gift and enjoying a family
meal, or perhaps a special day outing.
