Father's Day

This year Father's Day is on Sunday, June 19, and I wanted to tell you all a little bit about what we are celebrating. Many scholars believe that the origin of Father's Day dated back nearly 4,000 years ago in Babylon. A young boy named Elmesu who made a message on a card made out of clay to give to his father that wished him good health and a long life. Though there is no records of Elmesu or his father, their tradition spread throughout the countries and is still celebrated today.

So, now I want to tell you how Father's Day came to be in the grand old USA. We have Ms. Sonora Louise Smart Dodd to thank for bring Father's Day into America. She was a loving daughter from Spokane, Washington and because of her struggle we now celebrate Father's Day.

The idea of Father's Day came into her mind when she was by chance listening to a sermon. At the age of 27, Sonora thought that if there was a day tohonor mothers, that it was only fair to have a day to honor fathers also. Sonora had a strong sense of respect for her father, Mr. William Jackson Smart, who was a civil war veteran. Sonora's mother died in childbirth when she was just sixteen. Her father raised a new born with five other children and loved and cared for every one of the six children.

Ms. Dodd was inspired by Ms. Anna Jarvis, who struggle to promote Mother's Day, and she started a campaign to promote Father's Day. The Spokane Ministerial Association and the YMCA supported Sonora's cause. Because of this, Spokane celebrated their first Mother's Day June 19, 1901. Though hesitant at first the idea spread and gained popularity and is now celebrated around the United States along with the rest of the world.
Well, for one thing, this year you will definitely know what you're celebrating when you bring your dad a card and a gift that you made on Father's Day morning.
