My Great-Grandfather, Grandfather, Mother
Did you know that Father’s Day idea came about as far back as 1910? A 27 year old woman named Sonora Dodd wanted to honor father who raised her and her five siblings after her mother died in childbirth.
A bill to nationally recognize the holiday was introduced in Congress in 1913, but really become popular during World War II. There were two attempts to recognize the holiday but Congress rejected both. Then in 1966, President Lyndon Johnson issued the first presidential proclamation honoring father and designated the third Sunday in June as Father’s Day. Six year later, that date was made a permanent national holiday. President Richard Nixon signed it into law in 1972.
