History Of Father’s Day
On July 5, 1908 the First Father’s Day celebration was observed in Fairmont, West Virginia, U.S. after an worst mining accident that took place in U.S. history. Hundreds of men died in this accident.
After this incident Grace Golden Clayton, daughter of a dedicated minister of the U.S. put forward a proposal of celebrating Father’s Day for giving honour to all the fathers and especially to those who died in the incident. But it didn’t become an annual event and wasn’t promoted .
Later Sonora Smart Dodd lived in Spokane, Washington decided to convince the Spokane Ministerial Association and YMCA to celebrate Father’s Day and proposed 5 june as the date to celebrate as it was the birthdate of her father. She succeeded in convincing the ministers and hence the ministers gave the Third Sunday of June to be declared as Father’s Day.
Later on this day was promoted and introduced among all the countries of the world and today it is celebrated in most countries in the world as a tribute to father’s contribution to our lives.
