Why do we celebrate FATHERS DAY???
Father's Day was first celebrated by Sonora Scott Dodd in Spokane, Washington. 
She had been raised just by her father after her mother died when she was young. Mother's Day already existed and she wanted to honor fathers in the same way.
  • Father's Day became official in 1924, when U.S. President Calvin Coolidge roclaimed it to be recognized on the 3rd sunday in June. Roses are the official flower, and red and white the official colors.
  • Herodotus is considered the "Father of History."
  • Aristophanes is the "Father of Comedy."
