African proverb

THE ORIGINS

Less celebrated around the world, yet just as important, Father's Day is originally a Christian holiday dating back to the Middle Ages and celebrated on March 19th, St. Joseph's Day.

It is at the beginning of the XXth century that the United States made it a civil holiday. After several attempts, it is the holiday instituted on June 19, 1910 by Sonora Smart Dodd that has had some success.

A schoolteacher by trade, she regretted that there was no day dedicated to fathers, and wanted to pay tribute to her father who had raised his six children alone after the death of his wife.

Ideally, she would have liked to celebrate it on June 5, her father's birthday. But her village pastor warned her that he would not have time to prepare his special sermon for the occasion.

So another date was chosen, the third Sunday in June.

Different traditions have existed since then and the date varies from country to country.

Sonora Smart Dodd and her father.

The mother is a deity, the father a treasure.

Indian proverb
