Did you know Father’s Day was founded in Washington in 1910 by Sonora Smart Dodd, Its first celebration was in the Spokane YMCA on June 19, 1910. Her father, the Civil War veteran William Jackson Smart, was a single parent who raised his six children there and the day was created to honour him and it’s achievements as a single father.
While Mother’s Day has been a national holiday since 1914, Father’s Day wouldn’t get the same legal status until more than half a century later. In the 1920s there was a national revolt and people wanted to get rid of both Mother’s and Father’s Day and replace them with a “Parent’s Day.” Others saw it as “Hallmark” holiday invented for the sole purpose of a commercial gimmick which I think we can all agree was a concern that has now become a reality. So what does Father’s day mean to you? Do you celebrate your Father all year around?
