Father;s Day was intoduced by Mrs. Sonora Smart Dodd

History
Reportedly, Father's Day in 1909 Mrs. Sonora Smart Dodd introduced by, from Washington state, where her father wanted them, William Jackson Smart, a Civil War veteran who became a widower after his wife in childbirth at birth the sixth child died. When his daughter had grown up, she wanted the strength and perseverance of her father's highlight. It was this inspired by Anna Jarvis, who launched a Mother's Day.

The first Father's Day then took place on June 19, 1910 in Spokane, Washington. President Calvin Coolidge supported the idea in 1924 to celebrate a Father's Day, but the existing all-male U.S. Congress did not make something so the men sat in the sun. The effect of this was that the day before it was officially recognized in the U.S. during the presidency of Richard Nixon in 1972.

Father's Day since the sixties is also celebrated in the Netherlands.
