The History of Father’s Day

I am fortunate enough to have 3 men I call dad. I won’t go into why but my love for the dads in my life prompted me to dig into the history of Father’s Day. Ironically, Fathers’ Day was started by a woman, Sonora Smart Dodd, who was perplexed as to why fathers weren’t celebrated to the same extent as mothers on an annual basis. In her opinion, her father who was a widower and raised 6 children on his own definitely deserved acknowledgement. And, so it began…this wonderful day that praises the many biological dads, step-dads, men (and women) who are raising their children to be, at the most basic of levels, good people.

From all of us at Libertate, here’s to you Dad!
