Have you ever wondered why we celebrate Father's Day in the first place other than the fact that dads are AWESOME? Here's a little history for ya:
Father's Day was first talked about after a mining accident killed 361 men in Monongah, West Virginia in December 1907. A Sunday sermon was held in honor of these men, thus becoming the first fathers-only memorial event in the U.S.
Getting her inspiration from the woman behind the Mother's Day movement, Sonora Smart Dodd pushed to have an official day to honor fathers for their hard work and commitment to their families. Dodd and her 5 other brothers and sisters were raised by only their father, hence her inspiration to honor her dad.
The first Father's Day was celebrated in the state of Washington on June 19, 1910.The holiday spread around the country and in 1924, Calvin Coolidge urged state governments to observe the holiday. It wasn't until Nixon that the holiday became permanent in 1972. Today the holiday is observed on the third Sunday of June.
