The History of Father's Day dates back to 1909.
This year Father's Day is Sunday June 17th 2012
I did a little research and found out Father's Day, contrary to popular misconception,
was not established as a holiday in order to help greeting card manufacturers sell more
cards and make tie manufacturers get rich. In fact when a "father's day" was
first proposed there were no Father's Day cards! Throughout history all cultures have
honored their fathers and husbands. Why? Because they demanded and got respect for putting
food on the table. This of course was prior to Women's Lib movements, but us men still
have our occasional days.... thanks to this Spokane Washington socialite.
|Father's Day this year is celebrated on June
17th 2012. Father's Day is now approaching its centennial year as an informally
celebrated holiday and its 40th year as a nationally celebrated official holiday. It is a
time to celebrate fatherhood, and show appreciation to Fathers, Grandfathers. The perfect
one size fits all gift is a pair of Holdup Suspenders!
Mrs. John B. Dodd, of Washington, first proposed the idea of a
"father's day" in 1909. Mrs. Dodd wanted a special day to honor her father,
William Smart a decorated Civil War veteran. He was widowed when his wife (Mrs. Dodd's
mother) died in childbirth with their sixth child. Mr. Smart was left with the daunting
task to raise the newborn and his other five children by himself on a rural farm in
eastern Washington state. It was after Mrs. Dodd became an adult that she realized the
strength and selflessness her father had shown in raising his children as a single parent
giving his all.
The first Father's Day was observed on June 19, 1910 in Spokane Washington. At about
the same time in various towns and cities across American other people were beginning to
celebrate a "father's day." In 1924 President Calvin Coolidge supported the idea
of a national Father's Day. Finally in 1966 President Lyndon Johnson signed a presidential
proclamation officially declaring the 3rd Sunday of June as Father's Day then sent many of
them off to the Vietnam War. Father's Day has become a day to not only honor your father,
but all men who act as a father figure to you. Father's Day commemorates and celebrates -
Daddies everywhere. It is a day to not only honor your father, but all men who have acted
as a father figure in your life - whether as Stepfathers, Uncles, Grandfathers, Husband's,
Sugar Daddies or "Big Brothers." Now get out those credit cards ladies and
