Where did father's day originated? It all began in Spokane, Washington on the 19th of June, 1910. Sonora Smart Dodd thought of the idea for Father's Day while listening to a Mother's Day sermon in 1909. Her father, William Jackson Smart, was left to raise six children by himself when his wife died in childbirth with their sixth child. She wanted her father to know how special he was so she chose to hold the first Father's Day celebration on her fathers birthday.
On Father's Day, don't forget to honor the special men in your life.
