About Fathers
Day in America
F athers day is celebrated around the world
as a day to honor and show love and re-
spect to fathers. Here in the United States we
adopted the third Sunday of June for the cel-
ebration.
The first Fathers day celebration in the
US dates back to two stories. The first being
about a woman name Sonora Smart Dodd
from Washington State, who came up with
the idea to celebrate her father William
Smart. The inspiration came to her while lis-
tening to a sermon about Mothers Day on
1909.
The other story that is associated with
the first Fathers Day in America took place
on July 5, 1908 in West Virginia. It was Long Island residence and supermarket Commanding Officer of the Bronx 47th
