All About Father's Day

Jun 09, 2015

Father's Day isn't just a day for dads to get more ties. It's celebrated on the third Sunday of June to honor dads, grandfathers, step-dads and all men who act as a father figure. Like most holidays that go way back, the origin is hard to trace but most people will agree that Sonora Dodd played a big part in starting the holiday. This year Father's Day is June 21st, 2015!

A Little Father's Day History

Sonora Louise Smart Dodd first brought up the idea of a father's day in 1909. She wanted a special day to honor her father, William Smart. When Sonora's mother died in childbirth with her sixth child, William was left to raise the newborn and five other children by himself on a farm in Washington state. As an adult, Sonora realized how strong and unselfish her dad had been raising his kids as a single parent.

Sonora wanted Father's Day to be celebrated on the first Sunday in June, because it was close to her dad's birthday. Instead, the first Father's Day celebration took place on June 19, 1910 in Spokane, Washington. In 1966, President Lyndon Johnson made the third Sunday of June Father's Day. It wasn't until 1972 that President Richard Nixon made Father's Day a national holiday - about 60 years after Mother's Day had been made a national holiday.

I like being tall but the thing is ive also got a i need a boy taller than me or my own height thing because i just feel more safer or protected. I don't think its dumb its just the way people are. In order to judge people you need to know who they are, what their personality is and just how the way they are because some girls have a got a thing like that too just like me. I cant date a boy smaller than me unless we are perfect well even close to perfect so the thing is it is just how we are. Problem solved!!!

oh bruhh, do you not think anything bad is going to happen? i am in the top sets for everything in my school and the kids that are with me act like two years old. Bloody they kiss in front of everyone and do you know what else?? They pass notes to each other and like on Tuesday this girl got dumped and this is how the boy did it. They were passing notes to each other and then the boy write a note saying he dumped her and showed it to the whole class and the girl was in tears. She was crying and the boy was dancing saying i just dumped her in a sick way. Also if you and your bf/gf are walking in the park someone in the park and some lunatic attacks you haw are you supposed to defend yourself??? i think if you date at the age of eleven you are being immature and you are immature. You are not wise enough but if you dont agree fine by me im not anyone you know and im not your parent so yh if you agree then you agree and if you dont you dont!!!
