DADDY has been your coach, teacher, biggest fan and supporter all these years. Fathers’ Day is a special day set aside for all of us to remember how truly special Dad is.

Its a day celeberated every third Sunday of June, now it is on 19th of June.

LitBit History

It began with a young woman in Spokane, Wash., in 1909. Sonora Louise Smart was the daughter of a Civil War veteran who was raising his children alone following the death of their mother. Sonora heard a Mother’s Day sermon and wondered why there was no holiday honoring fathers. She shared her concern with local ministers at a meeting at the Spokane, Wash. YMCA. The first Father’s Day celebration took place at the Spokane Y on June 19, 1910, in William Smart’s birth month.

Sonora Smart had suggested that fathers be honored through religious services, special meals, small gifts and the wearing of red roses. In 1972, President Nixon signed Father’s Day into law. Today, the day dedicated to Dads has become increasingly an opportunity to lavish gifts and loving gestures on one’s father.
