Father's Day Gifts and Gift Baskets
Fun Facts: In 1909, the Father's Day holiday was inspired by Sonora Dodd of Spokane, Washington, while she listened to a Mother's Day sermon. Sonoraís father, William Smart, was a Civil War veteran. He had raised his six children by himself after being widowed. In 1910, the mayor of Spokane proclaimed June 19th as Father's Day because Mr. Smart was born in June. In 1966, President Johnson declared the third Sunday in June as the official Father's Day. In 1972, President Nixon made it official by signing a law making the Fatherís Day holiday permanent.
