Sonora Smart Dodd is credited with starting Father’s Day after she heard a sermon on Mother’s Day. She wanted to honor her father, who was a Civil War Veteran. Thus, the first Father’s Day was celebrated in Spokane, Washington (where Sonora was from) in 1910. It wasn’t until 1972 when Richard Nixon signed a law that permanently recognizes Father’s Day.
Before jumping into the gift ideas for Father’s Day, let’s discuss a little about Father’s Day itself and why we celebrate Father’s Day.
Father’s Day is always celebrated on the third Sunday in June thanks to President Lyndon Johnson who signed a proclamation for this to happen. So, this year, it happens on June 16.
1.Dads are playful and adventurous. Dad’s know how to have fun and play with our kids! They teach us new things and take us on adventures.
2.Dads are our protectors. If there’s one thing that my husband does, it is protect our family. He will go above and beyond to keep me and my daughter safe.
3.Dads are role models. Dad’s are someone we look up to and learn from. They are our heroes.
4.Dads help us learn all about great music. My first concert was introduced to me by husband. It was Kiss and Poison! Ever since, I feel in love. He has introduced my daughter at a very young age to great music. The other day, my 3-year-old daughter was rocking out to Queen!
5.Dads can help with things that I can’t do. I am horrible at repairs or fixing things. In comes dad, who can fix it! He can also put together Christmas gifts!
6.Dads also contribute to taking care of the kids and the household! They may change diapers, feed our kids, drive them to practice, provide for us financially, and even cook dinner.
7.They are our rock!
