In many countries around the world Father's Day is celebrated on the third Sunday of June.
But they began to celebrate it in America. A woman named Sonora Smart, married to Dodd (Sonora Smart Dodd) in 1909 in church during a Mother's Day service, thought that after the death of her mother, her father, William Jackson Smart, raised her and five other children.
Sonora wanted her father to know what a special person he is to her, how much she loves and appreciates him. After all, her father sacrificed everything to fulfill all his parental duties and was in the eyes of his daughter the most courageous, unselfish and loving person.
