Father’s Day is the celebration of fatherhood. The holiday began in the early 20th century. A woman named Sonora Smart Dodd, who was raised solely by her father, thought that there should be a day for dad’s to complement Mother’s Day. She celebrated the first Father’s Day on June 19,1910. By 1926 Congress formally recognized the holiday. Then in 1972, President Richard Nixon established a National Observance of the holiday for the third Saturday in June.
