THE HISTORY OF FATHER’S DAY
Boring? Not really! It is fun to learn the history of “Father’s day”, considering in the United States there is a large percentage of persons who celebrate their father’s on this very special day. Here is a short history about a day which has become famous and celebrated in different countries all over the world every year.
There are a number of theories linked with the ceremonial honoring of our father’s. There are different ‘histories’ of this event to make note of. The 1st theory to about the celebration of Father’s Day was given on June 19, 1908 in Washington when an autonomous celebration of Father’s Day, one or two weeks later, took place on Jul, 5, 1908 in Fairmont, West Virginia. Consequently, the first Father’s Day was known in West Virginia and was celebrated at the Williams Memorial Methodist Episcopal Church South.
One more influencing force that further reinforced the founding of Father’s Day was that of Mrs. Sonora Smart Dodd. She gave homage to the idea of Father’s Day during listening to a Mother’s Day oration during 1909. It was her father who made the entire parental sacrifices as well as was, in the eyes of his lovely daughter, a spirited, selfless, as well as loving man. For this reason, since Sonora’s father was born during June, so she selected to hold the 1st Father’s Day commemoration in Spokane during June. The 1st June Father’s Day was famous on 19th June, 1908, within Spokane, WA, in the Spokane YMCA. President Calvin Coolidge declared it a national holiday during 1924. During 1966, President Lyndon Johnson, by administrator issuance, introduced Father’s Day a holiday to be celebrated on the 3rd Sunday of June.
This was a short history and some different philosophies about the Father’s Day which is celebrated throughout the world. Whatever you believe, we continue to honor our father’s as leaders, provider’s, mentors in every way. Happy Father’s Day – in a big way!
