Fathers Day


June 17, 2018


History: Father's Day was not celebrated in the US, outside Catholic traditions, until the 20th century. As a civic celebration in the US, it was inaugurated in the early 20th century to complement Mother's Day by celebrating fathers and male parenting. Tthe first observance of a "Father's Day" was held on July 5, 1908, in Fairmont, West Virginia, in the Williams Memorial Methodist Episcopal Church South, mourning the loss in December 1907 of the Monongah Mining Disaster in West Virginia which killed 361 men, 250 of them fathers, leaving around a thousand fatherless children.
