Father’s Day is a time for us to honor and celebrate the wonderful fathers and father figures in our lives. Those who’ve inspired us, offered their unconditional support, and pushed us to be the best we can be.
The History of Father’s Day
Inspired by a church service honoring mothers, Mrs. Sonora Louise Smart Dodd (1882-1978) wanted fathers to be similarly honored. In particular, she wanted to honor her father, William Jackson Smart, who raised Sonora and her five siblings alone after his wife passed away. (via howstuffworks.com)
The first Father’s Day in the US was celebrated on June 19, 1910, in the state of Washington. However, it was not until 1972 (58 years after President Woodrow Wilson made Mother’s Day official) that the day honoring fathers became a nationwide holiday in the United States. (via history.com)
Father’s Day is now celebrated worldwide to recognize the contribution that fathers and father figures make to the lives of their children. This year’s Father’s Day occurs on Sunday, June 17, 2018.
