Falling on Sunday the 19th of June in the U.K. in 2022, Father's Day is known as the day where we celebrate the paternal figures in our lives. Held every year on the 3rd Sunday of June, the tradition been celebrated amongst European Catholics since the Middle Ages; where it was originally held on Saint Joseph's Day (March 19) and marked with a feast. The modern version of the day however, has no Christian involvement, and was imported from the U.S. after the day was established in 1908.
