Question: What is the origin of Father's Day?
Answer: Father's Day was first suggested in 1909 by Mrs. John B. Dodd, of Washington State as a holiday to honor her father (Sicard, 2006). Mrs. Dodd's father, Mr. William Smart, was a civil war veteran, who was widowed when Mrs. Dodd's mother died during childbirth. Mr. Smart was determined to raise his children by himself. When Mrs. Dodd became an adult, she realized the strength and selflessness of her father. He showed these qualities when he raised her siblings and herself as a single parent. The original date for Father's Day was June 5, Mr. Smart's birthday (Sicard, 2006). However, the holiday was changed to the third Sunday in June.
