Today (Sunday, June 19) is all about you, as we raise a glass and say thank you for all you do for your families.
And ahead of the big day, we asked the Sunderland Echo readers to share their treasured photographs and touching messages for the special men in their lives.
We were inundated with responses, and we’re sorry we can’t share them all.
But here are a selection of your greetings and tributes to loved ones this Father’s Day.
1. Together again
Victoria Gilmore Smith said: "Me and my Dad, our first Christmas together after being reunited after 45 years apart. Through the power of Facebook. Happy Father’s Day Dad.”
