Mrs. Sonora Dodd of Spokane, Washington, had one special Dad. He was a Civil War veteran who raised her and her five siblings after their mother died in childbirth, and Sonora decided she wanted a find a unique way to honor him. The year was 1909 and after listening to a sermon on Mother’s Day, Sonora was determined to make Father’s Day an official holiday as well. On June 19, 1910 the first Father’s Day was observed…in Spokane.
It took some time until the idea caught on nationally. It wasn’t until 1966 that President Lyndon Johnson signed a presidential proclamation declaring the 3rd Sunday of June as Father’s Day.
Today, Father’s Day is celebrated around the world, but on different dates. While England celebrates it on the 3rd Sunday in June, Australia and New Zealand mark it on the first Sunday in September. Brazil celebrates it on the second Sunday in August, and the Scandinavian countries on the second Sunday in November!
Father’s Day is a wonderful opportunity to thank all Dads. However, it’s sometimes hard to figure out exactly what to get them for Father’s Day. They aren’t always the best at giving us clues about what they’d like to get, so it is so much easier to just play it safe with the traditional “World’s Greatest Dad” mug, golf gear or, if you’re feeling particularly uninspired, a new tie. But surely dear old Dad deserves better than that, right?
That’s why it’s nice to know that Green Smoke® Electronic Cigarettes has created the perfect Father’s Day gift . This new Father’s Day Kit comes complete with a Starter Kit (2 e-cig batteries, 5 assorted cartridges, a USB Charger, and a wall adapter), an extra 5-pack of cartridges, and a great-looking carrying case.
Finally, a unique Father’s Day gift for your Dad!
