About 4,000 years ago, according to some reports, a young boy named Elmusu wished his Babylonian father good health and a long life by carving a message on a tablet made out of clay. No one knows what happened to Elmusu or his father, but the tradition of having a special day honouring fathers on Father’s Day has continued throughout the years and in most countries across the world.

In the Roman Catholic tradition, Fathers are celebrated on Saint Joseph’s Day, commonly called the Feast of Saint Joseph, on March 19. Nowadays, however, it is June that is most commonly reserved for the occasion. In early times, flowers were worn as the traditional way of celebrating Father’s Day. Today, it is more common to give a gift.
The modern, and some would say, commercial Father’s Day of western culture probably has it’s roots in America – introduced as a balance for the more traditional and historic Mothers Day. Grace Golden Clayton of West Virginia, is believed to have been inspired to celebrate fathers after a deadly mine exploded in nearby Monongah at the turn of the century killing almost 400 men. Other driving forces behind the establishment of Father’s Day were Anna Jarvis and Sonora Smart Dodd of Washington. Her father, a Civil War veteran, was a lone parent who raised his six children singlehandedly.
The Indalo shape (whether it be classical like Leonardo da Vinci’s Vitruvian Man, or spiritual as in the Rainbow Warrior of the ancient North American Indian Cree tribe), is a popular symbol (like the clover leaf, horseshoe, or scarab) used to pass on good luck sentiments to friends and family.
Our lucky charms come from Almeria in southern Spain close to where the original Indalos were discovered. This is a region of ancient culture believed to be the origin of the Neolithic civilisation that spread up into the whole of northern Europe between 4000 and 2000 BC – and the beginning of a megalithic era that was one of the great periods of Spanish and European history and included the construction of the mystical monuments of Stonehenge and Avebury in Britain. Cave paintings of Indalo-type shapes mingle with representations of suns, spirals, animals and labyrinths, each with their own mystical and esoteric meaning.
