Here is a bit of history on how Fathers Day got started:Father's Day is celebrated to acknowledge, and give thanks to the men who have had a profound affect in our lives. Giving a gift, sending a card or making a phone call on Father's Day to your own Father, Father In Law and to the Father of your children helps to show your love and thanks for all they have done and continue to do.
What is the origins of the Father's Day gift giving celebration?
Harry Meek, a past president of Chicago's Uptown Lions Club, is has been acknowledged as the creator of the Father's Day celebration. He promoted the idea through Lions Club speeches and eventually it was adopted. They set the day as the Sunday nearest his birthday which is the third Sunday in June. However, several years before him, in 1908, Dr. Robert Webb conducted what is believed as the first Father's Day service at the Central Church of Fairmont, West Virginia.
Father's Day continued to gain popularity throughout the years. It was finally officially established as a day of celebration by President Richard Nixon in the year 1972.
