The idea of celebrating Father's Day came up in1910, and was led bySmart Dood, an American who tried, in some way, to make the role of parents in society prominent, especially those parents who, like his, fulfilled the role of father and mother, in the education of their children, from the time of getting up until bedtime.
we tell you more about the history and origin of Father's Day.
The American origin of Father's Day
William Dodd, a veteran of the American Civil War who became widowed when his wife died while giving birth to his sixth child, was left alone and unsupported by taking on the task of caring for and educating to her six children on a farm east of Washington state.
Because of that, Smart Dood saw in his father a courageous, affectionate and disinterested man, who had made all kinds of sacrifices to help his family get ahead. At first, she tried to point out June 5, the date of her father's birthday, as the holiday by the parents, but found no support.
In 1915 the project remained firm and it was suggested that each family celebrate Father's Day with complete freedom. So in 1972 it was made official on the third Sunday of June to pay tribute to the parents. From this moment, the celebration quickly spread to Europe, Latin America, Asia and Africa. At the beginning, Father's Day was purely family and not commercial. However, over the years,
the stores began to take advantage of the issue a, to promote and sell products especially aimed at parents, which caught the attention of many grateful children, who found there a way to express the affection to his parents by means of a gift.
