Happy Fathers Day Fact!
In 1910, Dodd was apparently listening to a church service on Mother's Day, which itself had only existed for a few years and was still unofficial, and she began to think about everything her father had done for her growing up. The first Father's Day celebration took place where Dodd lived, in Spokane, Wash., in June.
Johnson proclaimed that the third Sunday in June would be officially known as Father's Day, saying that we look to fathers to "provide the strength and stability which characterize the successful family." In 1972, President Nixon made the day a national holiday.
