A little history about Father´s day:
¿Do you know the origin of Father’s Day, why is it celebrated?
The idea of creating Father’s Day arose in the United States, specifically in 1910, when a woman named Sonora Smart Dodd wanted to pay tribute to her father who had raised her and her five siblings alone on a farm in Washington state. Sonora came up with the idea while she was listening to a Mother’s Day sermon at church. She proposed the date for June 5, which was her father’s birthday.
In 1924 was the first official statement by President Calvin Coolidge who supported the idea of establishing a national father’s day.
It was not until 1966 that President Lyndon Johnson’s definitive declaration arrived, establishing the third Sunday of June as Father’s day in the United States.
The celebration gained followers and spread throughout the world. Panama and many countries adopted this date as Father´s day.
At CADI our school celebrated father´s day, on June 10th., our students honored their father’s love and dedication in a different way. Together they enjoyed, sport activities, and had fun creating arts and crafts.
