Things To Know About The History Of Father's Day

1. Sonora Dodd of Spokane, Wash. is given credit for establishing Father's Day in 1909 after listening to a Mother's Day Sermon. Dodd wanted to honor her widowed Civil War veteran father, William Smart, and picked June 17, 1910 in honor of her father's birthday.

2. The commercial success of Anna Jarvis' Mother's Day helped turn Father's Day into an official holiday -- President Lyndon Johnson issued a proclamation in 1966 issuing the third Sunday in June as Father's Day and President Richard Nixon signed it into law.

3. Father's Day falls on the third Sunday of June every year. MORE
