A brief history of Father’s Day

The concept of a day celebrating fatherhood dates back to at least 1508 with the Catholic feast day of Saint Joseph (the legal father of Jesus) though it may have been celebrated by Coptic Christians as far back as the fifth century! The modern celebration, however, originated in 1909, when Sonora Smart Dodd – who, along with her five brothers, was the child of a widower – heard a Mother’s Day sermon and decided there should also be a Father’s Day. She encouraged her local churches to celebrate the occasion and the first Father’s Day was celebrated on 19th June in 1910. The holiday soon took off and now we celebrate Father’s Day all over the world on the third Sunday of June.
