Father's Day began in Spokane Washington. A woman by the name of Sonora Smart Dodd wanted her father to know how special he was for raising her after her mother had died. Sonora's father was born in June so she chose to hold the first Father's Day celebration in Spokane Washington on the 19th of June 1910.
In 1926, a National Father's Day Committee was formed in New York City. Father's Day was recognized by a Joint Resolution of Congress in 1956. In 1972, President Richard Nixon established a permanent national observance of Father's Day to be held on the third Sunday of June. So Father's Day was born in memory and gratitude by a daughter that thought her father and all good fathers should be honored with a special day.
