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).

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.
