The Origins of Father’s Day
You could say that the mother of Father’s Day was Sonora Louise Smart Dodd. Sonora was the daughter of William Smart, a sergeant in the Union Army during the Civil War. When she was 16, Sonora’s mother passed and she was left, with her father, the task of raising her five younger siblings. Sonora held her father in great regard and was emotionally moved while hearing a church sermon about the newly recognized Mother’s Day. Sonora acted swiftly to get a day of honoring for men recognized and thus the first Father’s day was founded in 1910 in Spokane, Washington. It wasn’t until 1972, that President Richard Nixon signed into law a permanent U.S. Father’s Day to be observed on the third Sunday of June. Celebrate with great College Father’s Day Gifts from Fanatics, and show your dad that you’ve got an historic admiration for him.
