FOLLOWING US tradition, Father’s Day is celebrated in the Philippines every third Sunday of June.

Did you know that a woman named Sonora Dodd of Washington state first suggested honoring fathers on a special day?

The first Father’s Day was celebrated on June 19, 1910 in Spokane, Washington.

Sonora made the suggestion to honor her father, William Smart, a Civil War veteran.

Smart was widowed when his wife died giving birth to their sixth child. He raised his children by himself in a farm in eastern Washington.

In the Philippines, Father’s Day is a relatively new celebration. It dates back to at least two decades or so.
