The very first celebration of Father’s day was held on June 10, 1910 in Spokane, Washington, USA.
A lady named Mrs. Sonora Smart Dodd is the founder of this occasion. Sonora’s father, William Jackson Smart was a farmer and an American Civil War veteran.
Her mother died while giving birth to her sixth child, when Sonora was just 16 years old. Her widowed father raised all his six children singlehandedly.
