The idea for creating a day for children to honor their fathers began in Spokane, Washington. A woman by the name of Sonora Smart Dodd thought of the idea for Fatherâ€™s Day while listening to a Motherâ€™s Day sermon in 1909.
Having been raised by her father, William Jackson Smart, after her mother died, Sonora wanted her father to know how special he was to her. It was her father that made all the parental sacrifices and was, in the eyes of his daughter, a courageous, selfless, and loving man. Sonoraâ€™s father was born in June, so she chose to hold the first Fatherâ€™s Day celebration in Spokane, Washington on the 19th of June, 1910.
In 1926, a National Fatherâ€™s Day Committee was formed in New York City. Fatherâ€™s Day was recognized by a Joint Resolution of Congress in 1956. In 1972, President Richard Nixon established a permanent national observance of Fatherâ€™s Day to be held on the third Sunday of June. So Fatherâ€™s Day was born in memory and gratitude by a daughter who thought that her father and all good fathers should be honored with a special day just like we honor our mothers on Motherâ€™s Day.
