Significance of Father’s Day 2018
Father’s Day is a holiday celebrated annually on the third Sunday of June. It is a day that commemorates fatherhood and appreciates all fathers and father-figures (including grandfathers, great-grandfathers, stepfathers, and foster fathers) as well as their contribution to society.
History of Father’s Day
The History of Father’s Day 2018 dates back to 1910 in Spokane, Washington, where 27-year-old Sonora Dodd proposed it as a way to honour the man (a civil war veteran William Jackson Smart) who raised her and her five siblings alone after her mom died in childbirth. Dodd was at a church thinking about how grateful she was for her father when she had the idea for Father’s Day, which would mirror Mother’s Day but be celebrated in June, her dad’s birthday month.
It is said that she was inspired after hearing a sermon about Jarvis’ Mother’s Day in 1909 at Central Methodist Episcopal Church, and she therefore told her pastor that fathers should have a similar holiday honouring them. A bill to nationally recognise the holiday was introduced in Congress in 1913.
In 1916, President Woodrow Wilson went to Spokane to speak in a Father’s Day celebration and wanted to make it official, but Congress resisted, with the fear that it would just another commercialized holiday. The movement grew for years but only became popular national in 1924 under former President Calvin Coolidge.
