Since the first Father’s Day in 1910, millions of Dads have been honored on the third Sunday of June. This American holiday has traveled to Canada, western Europe and countries in the Far East – everywhere you roam, across 50 nations, we love to honor our Dads!
Father’s Day was started by Sonora Dodd, who wished to praise her father in the same manner that Anna Jarvis had suggested honoring moms. (Mother’s Day began in 1908.) But the holiday had a bit of a rough time gaining acceptance in the general population. Between the first observance of Father’s Day in Spokane, Washington and it’s official declaration in 1972, six decades had passed. Some speculated that the holiday was too “sensitive” for men, while most simply considered it a gimmick to sell more products to folks who felt obligated. Whether that last fact is true or not, there is no arguing that there are millions of ties, shirts, golf clubs, fishing poles and tool sets sold every June.
