Honoring Dads: Interesting facts, activities and ways to celebrate

The idea of Father’s Day began with Sonora Dodd who wanted to honor her father for raising her and her siblings after their mother died in childbirth. She was listening to a sermon about honoring mothers and she decided fathers should be honored too. Her father’s birthday was in June, so she got local churches to honor fathers that month. In 1966, President Lyndon B. Johnson declared that the 3rd Sunday in June would be Father’s Day.
