According to Info Please, Sonora Smart Dodd of Spokane, Washington, organized the first Father's Day celebration on June 19, 1910, her own father's birthday. The mayor of Spokane and the governor of Washington state officially support the event. Dodd's father, a farmer and Civil War veteran, had been a single father to six young children after the death of his wife. In 1924, President Calvin Coolidge publicly supported plans for a national Father's Day. In 1956, the observance of Father's Day was recognized by a Joint Resolution of Congress. President Lyndon Johnson proclaimed Father's Day to be an official national holiday in 1966. In 1972, President Richard Nixon signed into law a permanent U.S. Father's Day to be observed on the third Sunday of June.
Did you know that by 1999, Father's Day was the fifth most popular card-sending holiday, with an estimated $95 million in card sales. Not just fathers but husbands, grandfathers, uncles, sons, and sons-in-law are among the honorees. By 2001, only days before Father's Day, an estimated 53% of Americans do not know what they will buy for the holiday. If they are like last year's consumers, 60% will buy cards, while the most popular gifts will be apparel (41%), dinner (38%), sporting goods (22%), home improvement merchandise (18%), electronics (17%), and gardening tools (12%).
In 2004, there were an estimated 98,000 "stay-at-home" dads. These are married fathers with children under 15 years old who have remained out of the labor force for more than one year primarily so they can care for the family while their wives work outside the home. By 2008, there were an estimated 159,000 "stay-at-home" dads.
