The Origin of Father's Day

In Australia we celebrate Fatherís Day on the first Sunday in September but in the UK & the USA, Fatherís Day is celebrated on the third Sunday in June.

The idea for Fatherís Day originated in 1909 in Spokane, Washington, USA. A woman by the name of Sonora Smart Dodd was sitting in church listening to the Mother's Day sermon. She found that during this sermon she began to think about her father and the influence he had had on her life and held the first Fatherís Day on the birthday of her father on 19 June 1910. Soon the idea began to spread & in 1924, the US President of the day, Calvin Coolidge gave his support to the idea after Sonora Dodd sent him a petition.

A Fatherís Day committee was formed in 1926, and while informally observed it wasnít until 1972 that US President Richard Nixon passed a law that the 3rd Sunday of June would become a National Day to honour the way that fatherís contribute to a family.
