Father’s Day History

Sonora Smart Dodd was one of the daughters of an American Civil War veteran William Jackson Smart. Sonora lost her mother during the birth of her 5th sibling. So Sonora and her father raised all the 5 kids but Sonora also lost her father during Civil War.
Sonora wanted to recognize her father’s efforts and sacrifices so she decided to celebrate her father’s birthday – 5 June as Father’s Day alongside Mother’s Day. after making lots of efforts for this objective, finally on it was decided to celebrate Father’s Day with the approval of local religious leaders but not on 5th June.
The first Father’s Day was celebrated on 19 June 1910. Later in the year 1966, it was officially declared by the then President of the US – Lyndon B. Johnson that the Third Sunday of June will be observed as Father’s Day every year.
