The third Sunday in June marks the day known as Father’s Day, at least in 52 countries around the world. This day, a celebration of fatherhood, is a tradition that began in 1910 when Sonora Smart Dodd decided to outwardly recognize the greatness of her father. While the idea was first faced with ridicule and mockery, President Woodrow Wilson approved the idea of making the day official in 1913. Only in 1972 did it become a permanent national observance day under the presidency of Richard Nixon.
