Father's day in the UK
Though the UK now celebrates Father's Day on 21 June, a day of celebration in the name of fatherhood on 19 March can be found dating back to Catholic Europe in the Middle Ages. This was the day of the feast of Saint Joseph, Jesus’ legal father, who has throughout the ages been considered the patron saint of workers, the protector of the Catholic Church and a role model for fathers. It is thought that the celebration of fatherhood was actively encouraged by the Catholic Church on this day.
