The History of Father's Day
It was a tragedy that sparked American Grace Golden Clayton to suggest the first known observance of a Father's Day in 1907. While Grace was mourning the death of her father, a mining disaster in Monongah killed 361 men, making around a thousand children fatherless. Grace, together with her pastor, organised a church service to honour the men and recognise those they left behind.
In 1910, Sonora Smart Dodd led a celebration at her local YMCA in Spokane, Washington, honouring her father, a civil war veteran who single-handedly raised six children. Sonora's Father's Day celebrations gathered momentum and in 1916 President Woodrow Wilson travelled to Spokane to speak at a Father's Day celebration. Wilson presented a bill to Congress to make Father's Day official, but it wasn't made a permanent national holiday in America until 1972.
Today, the majority of countries celebrate Father's Day on the third Sunday in June. However, Australia celebrates Father's Day on the first Sunday in September to coincide with the first day of spring.
