St Joseph, Nutritor Domini, is celebrated on 19 March for being the ‘putative’ father of Christ. Since the 14th century, this feast day has expanded its reach to the celebration of fatherhood in general. Indeed, many catholic countries continue to celebrate the Festa del Papà on this date, but like many things, this changed in England with King Henry VIII. Nowadays, we celebrate our Paters, those who remain with us and those who have gone before, on the third Sunday in June.
It is all too easy to let this holiday slip by with only the customary tie or pair of socks offered up as a dedication to our fathers, but why not make this year that little bit more special? Below are five recommendations from the Oliver Brown range certain to show Dad that he’s appreciated:
