Father's Day

Today is June,19th a day to honour fathers arround the world ! so I just wanted to share some things about this day and it's origins so lets see

The Father's day holiday started the first time by
Sonora Smart Dodd, She initiated the idea after listening to the mother's day sermon in 1909 then she suggested the idea of the holiday..

She did that to honour her father who was a Civil War veteran, he raised her with other 5 siblings when her mom died in childbirth. it was a tough job for a single parent to do that so she wanted to honour him with a special day..

The date of the holiday was chosen because it is here father's birthday :)
In 1916, President Woodrow Wilson and his family personally observed the day and in 1924 President Calvin Coolidge supported the idea of a national Father's Day, but it didn't become an official holiday int the states until 1966...
I really do believe that mother's day should equals father's day, they both do an equal jobs towards their kids but each one from his/hers place.. that's why we call it a family ..

So now all I want to say is Happy Father's Day to all fathers around the world and to daddy , the greatest dad ever ^.^

I loved this cartoon :D
