Brief father’s day history

There are several stories regarding the origin of this celebration. I will highlight some of the others later, but the most accurate first account of father’s day celebration occurred in Washington on June 19, 1910. Sonora Smart Dodd is credited with creating the idea of a father’s day after a mother’s day sermon in church inspired her to honour her father. I bet it would displease her to see the latter still gets the most attention.

Sonora’s dad, William Smart was a civil war veteran and a quiet man. His wife passed away while delivering their sixth child and William raised the kids all by himself on a small farm in Washington. To pay homage to the hard work her father had done to ensure they get a comfortable life, Sonora suggested the first father’s day celebration should be on June the 5th. However, the ceremony was delayed until the third Sunday due to bad planning.

The other story regarding the history of father’s day and fathers day quotes takes us to Fairmont West Virginia, in the United States. Grace Golden Clayton suggested to the then Minister of the Local Methodist Church on July 5, 1908, that they hold a service to celebrate dads after 361 men were killed in a mined explosion. Lyndon B. Johnson made an executive order in 1966 designating the third Sunday as the official day to celebrate father’s day.

However, it wasn’t until President Nixon took office in 1972 that father's day was recognised as a national holiday. Father's day this year will be celebrated on Sunday, 17th June in most parts of the globe, but others have already observed this famed day. Father's day is usually celebrated on the third Sunday of June. However, happy fathers day wishes were circulating in Iran on March 14, 2018.
