The tradition of Father’s Day originated in Spokane, Washington in 1909 when Sonora Louise Smart Dodd first formulated the idea during a churxch service. She was incredibly active in petitioning and in 1910, the first Father’s Day was celebrated in Spokane. It was promoted by presidents through the early 1920s and beyond. It wasn’t until 1972 when President Richard Nixon established a permanent national holiday to be held on the third Sunday in June.
