Fathers Day 2010

Fathers Day 2020 has passed. Fathers Day is a day to remember and honor our fathers. It may also be a day for others to celebrate your fatherhood. I hope that everyone had a great day. I did.
After the festivities, I started to think about the origins of Fathers Day. So, I did a little research.
The idea of Fathers Day came from Sonora Smart Dodd. In 1910, in a church in Spokane, Wa., the idea came to her. Her father, William Dodd, raised herself and 5 sons after his wifes' death. She proposed June 5, her fathers' birthday. The date was moved to June 19 by church ministers who needed more time to prepare. The idea was supported by William Jennings Bryan, and received national support. Congress was slow to accept the idea since it was viewed as self congratulatory by the male Congress members.
In 1916, Woodrow Wilson and his family celebrated the day. But, it wasn't until 1972 that President Richard Nixon made Fathers Day a national holiday.
Historically, the Romans celebrated Fathers Day in February, but only honored deceased fathers.
If you enjoy Fathers Day, like I do, then it is important to take care of your health. You can't celebrate if you are ill or suddenly pass away.
Mens' health is an important issue.
