The Origins of Father’s Day

Father’s Day is a special day to honor fathers and father figures, including grandpas. The idea of celebrating fathers began in the early 20th century. The first known Father’s Day celebration was held in Spokane, Washington, on June 19, 1910. This celebration was organized by Sonora Smart Dodd, who wanted to honor her father, a Civil War veteran who raised six children on his own after his wife died in childbirth.

Gaining Popularity

The concept of Father’s Day gradually gained popularity across the United States. By the 1930s, many communities were celebrating Father’s Day. However, it wasn’t until 1966 that President Lyndon B. Johnson issued the first presidential proclamation honoring fathers, designating the third Sunday in June as Father’s Day. In 1972, President Richard Nixon signed it into law, making it a permanent national holiday in the United States.

Celebrations Around the World

Father’s Day is celebrated in various ways around the world. In Australia, it is observed on the first Sunday in September. In Brazil, it falls on the second Sunday in August. Each country has its own traditions, but the common theme is showing appreciation for fathers and grandfathers.

Special Recognition for Grandpas

Grandfathers hold a unique and cherished place in families. On Father’s Day, many people take the opportunity to honor their grandpas with special gestures. This could include spending time together, sharing stories, and giving gifts or handmade cards.
