As with mom’s special day, she is not the only particular person in your life dad is also very special. But when and how did Father’s Day become a day to celebrate all dad’s around the world.

It all started in a West Virginia church in July 1908 in a Sunday sermon to commemorate 362 men who died in an explosion at the Fairmont Coal mine situated in Monongah the previous year in December.

Still, it was only a one-time celebration at the time. Sonora Smart Dodd from Washington started campaigning for a special day for male parents the following year. She visited the YMCA, churches, shops, and government officials to help support the idea.

Sonora was successful, and Washington celebrated the first nation Father’s Day on June 19, 1910. Yet, it was not as popular as Mother’s Day. The day became a nationwide holiday in 1972, 58 years later after President Woodrow Wilson made Mother’s Day official.

Still, as with Mother’s Day, the enthusiasm was not that high as fathers did not have the same appeal to flowers as mothers. Nevertheless, the holiday slowly spread, and President Wilson honored the day in 1916 by unfurling a flag and using telegraph signals in Spokane, pressing the button in Washington D.C.

Eventually, it resulted in President Calvin Coolidge urging the state governments in 1924 to honor Father’s Day. But, many dads continued to disrespect the day as to how can they compare flowers with manliness. The men felt it was a commercial gimmick to sell products that the fathers pay for.

Then, in 1972 Richard Nixons signed a proclamation stating that Father’s Day becomes a federal holiday. Today, Americans spend over a billion dollars on Father’s Day gifts.
