Father’s Day Origin History
Father, pa, dad, and papa is not just a simple word you can say it; it’s a great valuable feeling you have to feel it inside you .In fact it’s the second great word after mother in the family concept. Father’s Day is a great message you can make; it’s a day to thank your only father for what he did to you; and it’s a great time to wish him a good health and to wish him a long life too. The tradition of having a special day for celebrating and honoring all mothers have been moved to all fathers too to have special day ; and time after time it had remained through the years in several countries across the whole world.
Father’s day is a symbol day created for many people in order to show their appreciation and all respects towards their fathers worldwide; and it’s a celebration honoring fathers and celebrating fatherhood.
In 1909 the idea of father’s day celebration came to Ms Sonora’s mind when she was listening to the sermon of mother’s day. She said why there isn’t a father day to honor the father; equally to the mother day to honor the mother? So she tried to establish an official holiday equivalent to mother’s day for male parents. She thought about her own father Mr. William Jackson Smart the civil war veteran the single parent (widower) who raised his six children after Sonora’s mother died while childbirth; when she was just 16 years old. Mr. Smart raised his daughter Sonora and his newborn and his four other children’s with love and care.
The first father’s day was held and celebrated on June 19 in 1910; in Spokane – WA. In 1924 – the President of the united state of America Calvin Coolidge recommended the day as a national holiday.
