A little Father’s Day History
Mrs. Sonora Dodd of Washington first proposed the idea of a Father’s Day in 1909. Mrs. Dodd wanted a special day to honor her father William Smart, a Civil War veteran, who was widowed when his wife died in childbirth with their sixth child.
The first Father’s Day was observed on June 19, 1910 in Spokane, Washington and soon after, other North American cities were celebrating their own “Father’s Day”.
From history to present day Father’s everywhere deserve to be celebrated. A greeting card from the USPS is a great way to begin.
