We all know what Father’s Day is: the one day of the year where we take time to recognize how special dads are. Of course, we can do that every other day of the year, too! Another thing we can do every day is make sure to use apostrophes correctly. Father’s Day is actually the grammatically correct name of this holiday, which is celebrated every year in the United States on the third Sunday in June. In 2022, it falls on June 19th.
