Father’s Day is a holiday in which we honor the fathers. On this day, we celebrate paternity and the crucial role of fathers in society. In the Netherlands it is celebrated on the third Sunday in June. Father’s day celebration was inspired by Mother’s day already in place. from the previous Mother’s Day.
Father’s Day was conceived in 1909 by Mrs. Sonora Smart Dodd, of Washington State, to honor her father, William Jackson Smart. He was a U.S. Civil War veteran who became a widower after his wife died in childbirth at the birth of their sixth child. After growing up, his daughter wanted to showcase her father’s strength and perseverance. She was inspired for this by Anna Jarvis, who had conceived Mother’s Day a year earlier.
