Handicrafts From Children

Yesterday was Father's Day in Spain. It is celebrated in Spain since 1948 when a teacher at a school in a poor neighborhood of Madrid, at the request of the fathers decided to honor the fathers having a party at school and giving to fathers handicrafts made by their children. That woman decided to hold the Feast of Saint Joseph, earthly father of Jesus (according to Christian tradition). Then it would add other schools, and from 1951 it became more or less nationwide (only at schools). But it was in 1953, when the owner of a department store made a national campaign and then became popular (and commercial) the idea of celebrating Father's Day.
In the picture, pencil holder made by my oldest son (4 years old) with all his love for me. And I've received with all illusion.
