The Origin of Father’s Day

Father’s Day is a special day dedicated to honoring fathers and celebrating fatherhood. The idea of Father’s Day began in the early 20th century in the United States. It was inspired by Mother’s Day, which had already become a popular holiday. But how did it all start?

The First Father’s Day

The first Father’s Day was celebrated on June 19, 1910, in Spokane, Washington. It was organized by Sonora Smart Dodd, who wanted to honor her father, William Jackson Smart. He was a Civil War veteran and a single parent who raised six children by himself. Sonora felt that fathers deserved their own special day, just like mothers did.

Making Father’s Day Official

The idea of Father’s Day slowly gained popularity across the United States. In 1924, President Calvin Coolidge showed his support for the holiday, but it wasn’t until 1966 that President Lyndon B. Johnson issued the first presidential proclamation honoring fathers. He designated the third Sunday in June as Father’s Day. Finally, in 1972, President Richard Nixon signed a law making Father’s Day a permanent national holiday.

Celebrating Father’s Day

Today, Father’s Day is celebrated in many countries around the world. People honor their fathers with gifts, cards, and special activities. Some popular Father’s Day gifts include tools, gadgets, and homemade crafts. Many families also enjoy spending time together, sharing meals, and creating lasting memories.
