History Father’s Day
Historically, Father’s Day has a Christian origin.
In Catholic countries, fathers are celebrated from the Middle Ages on 19 March, which corresponds to the day of Saint Joseph, one of the most important men of humanity and adoptive father of Jesus.
As early as the 5th century, the cult of this adoptive father developed according to an ancient tradition. In some Egyptian monasteries, the monks wrote the “Apocrypha”: the story of Joseph the carpenter, whose feast day is set for July 20 and is still included in the Coptic calendar today. The fixing of the date of Joseph’s feast has varied somewhat.
His cult, which the church associated with Father’s Day, developed in the 14th and 15th centuries. The tradition of Father’s Day really developed in the 19th century when the “Sacred Relief” and the devotion to St. Joseph came about. The date of Father’s Day has changed since then. But 19 March, a date introduced by Pope Sixtus IV in 1479, has been retained in several Catholic countries: Portugal, Spain, Italy and other countries in South America that have experienced the Hispanic influence.
Sonora Smart Dodd created the first Father’s Day in the early 20th century on 19 June 1910 and was quite successful. The schoolteacher created Father’s Day after noticing that there was a Mother’s Day but no Father’s Day, and she wanted to honour her father who, after his mother’s death, raised six children.
“Her initial choice was to celebrate the holiday on June 5, her father’s birthday, but the pastor warned her that he would not have time to prepare his special sermon for the occasion, so another date was chosen, the third Sunday in June. In the 1930s, Dodd commercialised the holiday by offering gifts from men’s clothing vendors and tobacco shops. In 1972, President Richard Nixon established Father’s Day as a national celebration and made it a national holiday.”
The traditions and date of Father’s Day have varied from country to country since that time.

- Travel chess games – €6.90on 1 October 2023 at 14 h 37 min
Progressively the movement of certain pieces is modified and, with a few details, all the really significant rules of the game (in particular the optional advance of the P, the prise en passant, the promotion and the castling) are acquired at the end of the XVth century. From Spain, the chess scepter passed to Italy (16th and 17th centuries), then to France (18th century), Great Britain and Germany (19th and early 20th century). Since the Second World War, for men, it has been the almost permanent property of the Soviet Union and then of Russia, whose supremacy, over a period of sixty years, was only really broken by the American Bobby Fischer (1972-1975). Before the Second World War, the best player in the world, Vera Menchik-Stevenson, was British. From the creation of a women’s world championship in 1949 until the disappearance of the USSR, the crowned champions (L. Rudenko, E. Bykova, O. Rubtsova, N. Gaprindashvili, M. Tchibourdanitzé and their rivals, K. Zvorikina, N. Alexandria, N. Iosséliani and E. Akhmilovskaya) were all Soviets. In the following years, players of other origins, such as the Chinese Xie Jun, Zhu Chen, Xuhua, the Hungarian-American Susan Polgar, the Bulgarian Antonoeta Stefanova, would appear. A list of famous men interested and sometimes passionate about chess would include hundreds of names. We can only quote those of whom we have very good games: J.-J. Rousseau, A. de Musset, Tolstoy, Meyrinck, Lewis Carroll, Lenin, Piatigorsky, D. Oistrakh, S. Prokofiev, M. Duchamp, V. Nabokov, John Paul II.
