The History of Father’s Day

The origins of Father’s Day can be traced back to the early 20th century in the United States. The first known celebration of Father’s Day took place in the state of Washington on June 19, 1910. It was initiated by Sonora Smart Dodd, who wanted to honor her father, a Civil War veteran and single parent who raised six children on his own.

Inspired by the newly established Mother’s Day, Sonora Smart Dodd proposed the idea of a day to honor fathers to the local YMCA and the Spokane Ministerial Alliance. The idea gained support, and the first Father’s Day celebration was held in Spokane, Washington, with churches, businesses, and other organizations participating in the event.

The idea of Father’s Day gained popularity over the years, and in 1924, President Calvin Coolidge expressed his support for the observance of Father’s Day. However, it was not until 1966 that President Lyndon B. Johnson officially designated the third Sunday in June as Father’s Day.

Finally, in 1972, President Richard Nixon signed a proclamation making Father’s Day a national holiday in the United States.

Since then, Father’s Day has been celebrated in many countries around the world, although the date of the observance may vary. It is a day to honor and appreciate fathers, father figures, and paternal bonds, and it is often marked by giving gifts, cards, and spending time with loved ones.
