The sixteenth of June 2019


The third Sunday in June has been designated as Father’s Day for 62 years in the United States, and was not officially recognized as a holiday until 1972. A young woman, Sonora Louise Smart Dodd was inspired by her own father, who raised her and her five siblings alone, and campaigned for a special day honoring all fathers to be celebrated on his birthday.

Even if you sometimes butt heads with your dad (like me), make sure to tell him how much he’s appreciated today.

Let’s hear it for dads!
