I cannot think of any need in childhood as strong as the need for a father’s protection.

我想像不出,在孩提时代,还有什么需要会像渴求父亲保护一样强烈。

                                                                                               —Sigmund Freud

 

父亲很少说爱,只是把最好的默默留给你。

父亲节。它和“双十一”“618”不同,并非是一个为了帮助商家销售更多礼物人造出来的节日。事实上,当“父亲节”的提议首先被提出时,父亲礼物这种概念根本就不存在。

父亲节的由来

Mrs. John B Dodd, of Washington, first proposed the idea of a “father's day” in 1909. Mrs. Dodd wanted a special day to honor her father William, whose wife died while giving birth to their sixth child. Mr. Smart was left to raise the newborn ;and his other five children by himself on a rural farm in eastern Washington state. It was after Mrs. Dodd became an adult that she realized the strength and selflessness her father had shown in raising his children as a single parent.

华盛顿州的约翰·布鲁斯·多德夫人在1909年首先提出了设立“父亲节”的提议。多德夫人希望有一个特殊的日子来向她的父亲———威廉·斯玛特表示敬意。他的妻子在生他们第六个孩子时因难产而死。斯玛特先生在华盛顿州东部乡下的农场里独自养大了六个孩子。多德太太成人后她才意识到她的父亲一个人养大孩子所表现的力量和无私。

The first Father's Day was observed on June 19,1910 in Washington. And it was in 1966 that President Lyndon Johnson officially declared the 3rd Sunday of June as Father's Day.

1910年的6月19日人们在华盛顿庆祝了第一个父亲节。林登·约翰逊总统最终于1966年宣布每年六月的第3个星期天为父亲节。

He and his first wife Valentina had sixteen pairs of twins, seven sets of triplets and four sets of quadruplets between 1725 and 1765 - a total of 69 children. Feodor later had 18 children with his second wife, bringing his grand total to 87. However, some historians have thrown doubt on the claims.
