📌 Did you know?

👉 Belated Recognition: Unlike Mother’s Day, which was officially recognized in the early 20th century, Father’s Day took longer to gain official status. It wasn’t until 1972 that President Richard Nixon signed it into law as a permanent national observance.

👉 Inspired by Mother’s Day: The idea for Father’s Day was inspired by Mother’s Day. After the success of Mother’s Day, Sonora Smart Dodd, who was raised by her single father, proposed a day to honor fathers. The first Father’s Day was celebrated in Spokane, Washington, in 1910.

👉 Initial Resistance: In its early years, Father’s Day faced resistance and criticism. Some saw it as a commercial ploy to replicate the success of Mother’s Day. Others felt it was an attempt to masculinize a holiday that should remain focused on mothers.

👉 Delayed Global Adoption: While Father’s Day is widely celebrated today, its adoption globally was somewhat delayed. It wasn’t until the late 20th century that many countries around the world officially recognized and embraced the holiday.

👉 Struggle for Official Status: Much like Mother’s Day, Father’s Day faced a prolonged struggle for official recognition. Attempts to establish it as a national holiday in the United States were met with resistance for several decades before it gained widespread acceptance.
