That's probably how the first Father's Day ever came about

Actually, the first Father's Day was born out of a misunderstanding. But then the day found many followers, and that has remained so until today.
In Germany, Father's Day takes place on Ascension Day. This was already the case in the Middle Ages. However, at that time «Father» did not mean the worldly father, but the heavenly Father, because on this church holiday Jesus ascends to his Father. At that time, prayer processions were common, in which one marched over fields and meadows and prayed for a good harvest.
In the 19th century, this holiday lost its religious meaning and became a secular Father's Day. Instead of participating in processions of supplication, men now rode in carriages overland, took beer and provisions with them or ended their merry trip in a beer garden.
For a long time, only poultry was eaten, as it flies and comes closest to the idea of «going to heaven». In the meantime, however, Father's Day has also become a day of honor for fathers in Germany.

That is why it is increasingly celebrated as a family celebration, for example making excursions together.
