And He said, “Abba, Father, all things are possible for You. Take this cup away from Me; nevertheless, not what I will, but what You will.”Mark 14:36

Father is the most formal name we use.

I think Daddy is more personal name to use.

Of course there are other names that some people use for their dad but most of them are not appropriate to put in this post.

Father’s Day is always celebrated the 3rd Sunday in June. Father’s Day was founded in 1910. It became a permanent national holiday when President Richard Nixson signed it into law in 1972.
