Psst— Did You Know?

The first Father’s Day was celebrated on June 19, 1910, in the state of Washington.

However, it was not until 1972 that the day honoring fathers became a nationwide holiday in the United States.

In Canada, the idea of a special day to honor fathers and celebrate fatherhood was introduced by a woman named Sonora Smart Dodd. She was inspired by American Mother’s Day celebrations and planned a day to honor fathers early in the 20th century.
