Give your Dad one of these 6 best hiking gifts. Celebrate your Fathers and your Father’s influence in our lives. Your Dad deserves a nice gift!
We had Father’s Day this year. Still, we all like a good story, right? I like this story about how Father’s Day started.
The day was first proposed by Sonora Dodd of Spokane, Washington in 1909. Ms. Dodd’s father was a Civil War veteran. Her father was also a single parent who raised his six children in Spokane.
In 1909, Ms. Dodd heard a sermon about Mother’s Day at Central Methodist Episcopal Church. She told her pastor that fathers should have a holiday like Mother’s Day.
She suggested June 5. That day was her father’s birthday. There was not have enough time to prepare a sermon. The day was moved to the third Sunday in June.
Father’s Day became a permanent, legal national holiday in 1972. Now, we celebrate the day on the third Sunday in June.
