Sonora’s father was born in June, so she selected to carry the primary Father’s Day celebration in Spokane, Washington on June 19, 1910.
In 1926, a Nationwide Father’s Day Committee was shaped in New York Metropolis. Father’s Day was acknowledged by a Joint Decision of Congress in 1956.

So Father’s Day was born in reminiscence and gratitude by a daughter who thought that her father and all good fathers must be honored with a special occasion identical to we honor our moms on Mom’s Day.
