Here’s a short history of Father’s Day
Now let’s talk about the origin story of father’s day. Unlike mother’s day, which has some very solid origins, father’s day has a lighter one, in comparison. A woman first created this day. It is the American girl Mrs. Sonara Smart Dodd, who invented father’s day. She wanted to honor her father. Therefore, she went around and gathered support for the idea of celebrating a separate day for the fathers; thereafter, on June 19, 1910, she and others celebrated fathers day in the state of Washington.
Moreover, did you know that the first American president who supported the concept of father’s day was none other than Calvin Coolidge? In fact, Woodrow Wilson too was inspired by the event. After that, both Calvin Coolidge and Woodrow Wilson urged the Americans to acknowledge a day for fathers during their administrations.
However, it wasn’t an official holiday. And with time, the enthusiasm for the much-awaited commemoration, too, didn’t last long. Thereafter, during the 20s and 30s, people tried to merge both father’s day and mother’s day as ‘parents day.’
How Father’s day was made official
If we look at the thing from a more historical perspective, then we can find that, during the Great Depression, the retailers tried to commercialize the holiday to make money in a dire financial crisis. Moreover, with world war II in its full fury, people started to use Father’s day as a sign to pay tribute and respect to the fallen American troops.
Thereafter, a decade later, President Richard Nixon signed proclamation 4127, which declared father’s day as the national holiday for the Americans.
