Father's Day 2024 Celebrations Across The Globe

June 16 marks every year as a day of reverence and celebration for fathers worldwide, as Father’s Day is observed with deep sentiment and gratitude in various countries. The event originally inspired by Sonora Smart Dodd, a devoted daughter from Spokane, Washington, pays tribute to fathers, grandfathers, and step-dads for their unwavering love and support.

Father’s Day, a monumental day founded in memory of Sonora’s father, William Jackson Smart, a dedicated single parent and Civil War veteran, has garnered widespread recognition internationally. The significance of this day extends not only to the familial setting but also to societal realms, reflecting the importance of paternal figures.

The observance of Father's Day extends beyond borders, with the US playing a pivotal role in its establishment as a nationally recognized celebration. In 1966, former US President Lyndon B. Johnson issued the first presidential proclamation for Father’s Day, designating the third Sunday of June for this heartfelt tribute. Subsequently, President Richard Nixon solidified this tradition by enshrining it into law.
