Explanation

For the first blank, the opposite-direction triggers although and not cancel each other out, so you can recycle the clue honored. Neither decorum nor ennui means honor, but esteem does.

For the second blank, the semicolon trigger indicates than an explanation will be given about how Father’s Day became an honored tradition. Ask yourself what was required from prominent figures before Americans embraced the holiday. The second blank must mean something like praise. Neither opprobrium nor hyperbole means praise, but accolades means praise. Thus, select esteem and accolades.

Hence options C and E are correct!
