Event Description : Fatherâs Day (USA), the idea for creating a day for children to honor their father began in Spokane, Washington. A woman named Sonora Smart Dodd thought of the idea for Fatherâs Day while listening to a Motherâs Day sermon in 1909. Having been raised by her father, after her motherâs death, she wanted her father to know how special he was to her. Sonoraâs father was born in June, so she echoes to hold the first Fatherâs Day celebration in Spokane, Washington on the 19th of June, 1910. In 1972, President Richard Nixon established a permanent national observance of Fatherâs Day to be held on the third Sunday.
