Did you know that the first official observance of “Father’s Day” was in 1910? But it wasn’t the national holiday we know, rather, a Father’s Day celebration was held in Spokane, Washington, at the Spokane YMCA on June 19, 1910. Hosted by Sonora Smart Dodd, the day was motivated by the memory of her father, the civil war veteran William Jackson Smart, who as a single parent, raised his six children. Yet, it wouldn’t be until 1972 when President Richard Milhouse Nixon signed the law making the third Sunday of June the nationally-observed holiday it is today.
Unfortunately, Father’s Day has become a bit of a joke, issuing father’s across the country with hastily-made macaroni art and ties (well, not so much anymore, as so few men work at vocations requiring neckties). And never one to miss an opportunity, Jettribe is opening up its doors wide for a limited-offer Father’s Day Sale happening now all the way until Monday, June 20th.
