Happy Father’s Day everyone!!!
How did Father’s Day begin?
Modern Father’s Day began in America in the year 1910. It was started by a woman named Sonora Smart Dodd as a compliment to Mother’s Day. Sonora had 5 brothers and sisters who were all raised (taken care of) by their father after their mother passed away when Sonora was younger.
Father’s Day was supported by stores across America and became around the late 1960’s. In North America and many places around the world Father’s Day is the third (3rd) Sunday of June but some countries and cultures celebrate on a different day and have different traditions.
How about your country? Do you celebrate Father’s Day? Is it on a different day? What do you usually do? What is the meaning of Father’s Day where you live?
