HOW DID THE FATHER'S DAY APPEAR?
Sonora Smart Dodd, the daughter of an American Civil War veteran, thought that fathers should have a day like Mother's Day. Dodd's father had raised his six children alone in their mother's absence. He started to work to declare his father's birthday, June 5, Father's Day, but these efforts could not reach that date and the celebrations were postponed to the third Sunday of June.
That's why Father's Day is celebrated in June. Father's Day was first celebrated on June 19, 1910 in Spokane, Washington. In 1924, United States President Calvin Coolidge supported the celebrations; but it has not officially declared Father's Day. In 1966, Lyndon Johnson, the president of that time, issued a statement declaring that the third Sunday of June would be celebrated as Father's Day every year. In 1972, Father's Day was legally declared a public holiday in the USA with the signature of President Richard Nixon.
