This Sunday, June 21st, is Father’s Day. It’s a day when we honour and give thanks to our fathers and father figures, like our grandfathers or our fathers-in-law. To mark the event, we’ve written this quiz all about famous fathers, historical fathers, legendary fathers, and even fathers from the animal kingdom.
Father’s Day is celebrated on different dates in different countries. In the United Kingdom, it falls on the third Sunday of June. It is a relatively new tradition, and was first celebrated here sometime after World War II, when it was introduced from America. Because it is a new thing, many see Father’s Day as a gimmick concocted to make us part with our money. Not us - we are getting into the spirit of the event, and you can too by playing this quiz.
Have a go and see if you know your famous fathers. Can you celebrate Father’s Day by getting all ten questions right first time? Good luck!
