The History of Father's Day

The origin of Father's Day can be traced back to the early 20th century. The idea of Father's Day was first proposed by a woman named Sonora Smart Dodd in 1909. She wanted to create a day to honor her father, William Smart, a Civil War veteran who had raised six children by himself after his wife died during childbirth. Dodd's idea was to create a day to celebrate fathers like her dad who had made great sacrifices for their families.


The first Father's Day was celebrated on June 19, 1910, in Spokane, Washington. However, it was not until 1972 that Father's Day was officially recognized as a national holiday in the United States.
