The Origins of Father's Day
Father's Day has a rich history that dates back over a hundred years.

Inspired by the idea of Mother's Day, Dodd proposed the concept of Father's Day to her local church in Spokane, Washington. After gaining support from her community and various organizations, Father's Day was officially recognized as a holiday in 1910.
