The Father's Day History: the day most probably originated in the USA and there are several stories of how it all started. The most popular is that it all began with a young lady called Sonora Louise Smart, who when their mother died in childbirth left their Dad to bring 5-children up alone in Washington. In 1909, Sonora heard a speech in church about Mother's Day and thought that fathers should also be celebrated. Several local clergymen agreed and got behind the idea, and it's believed that 19 June 1910 was the first unofficial Father's Day. In 1966, US President Lyndon B. Johnson decided the third Sunday in June should be Father's Day, and then in 1972 President Richard Nixon signed it into law...
