After failing to find a job, and being left in charge of their homes and young children, Charlie has an idea: if he and Phil can manage to take care of 2 kids, why not take care of 10? Candy, superheroes and destroying everything in sight are the hobbies of the mischievous residents of “Daddy Kangaroo”, the crazy, but fun daycare center set up in their own house, for the care of children during the day.
WHY IS “FATHER’S DAY” CELEBRATED?
There are several stories about the emergence of this celebration, but the most respected dates back to the beginning of the 20th century, in Washington (United States). In 1909, a woman named Sonora Smart Dodd, after hearing a sermon on Mother’s Day (which was already celebrated there), wanted to honor her father, William Smart. This was a veteran of the civil war, who was widowed after his wife died after giving birth to his sixth child and raising them alone on a rural farm. The date proposed by her was June 5, her father’s birthday, thus celebrating the first “Father’s Day” in history in 1909.
However, as much as the proposal to honor the parents was installed, its date was not. It wasn’t until 1924 that President Calvin Coolidge made it a national holiday, and in 1966, President Lyndon Johnson changed it to the third Sunday in June.
