Sonora Dodd, from Washington,first proposed the idea of a Father’s Day in 1909.
She wanted to honour her father because he had raised his 6 children as a single parent.
The day was first made a holiday in 1966, with President Lyndon B. Johnson.
Six years later, the day was made a permanent holiday by Richard Nixon.
Nowadays, all men who act as a father figure are honoured on this day.
In many catholic countries, such as Portugal, Father’s Day is celebrated on March 19, St. Joseph’s Day.
Make sure your DAD feel appreciation and very special this FATHER'S DAY!
"Daddy, I love you
For all, that you do.
I'll kiss you and hug you
'Cause you love me, too."
