Father’s Day questions

Who, where and when started the celebration of the Father's Day?
The Father’s Day story goes back to June 19, 1910. On this day in the United States in Spokane town Father’s Day was started thanks to Sonorze Smart Dodd. She came up with the idea to commemorate her fathers when she learned about the existence of Mother’s Day. It was especially important to her because she wanted to commemorate and care for her family, when her and her five siblings raised their father alone – William Smart, an American Civil War veteran. She proposed the date of June 5 due to the fact that it was her father’s birthday, but the councilors accepted the third Sunday in June as the holiday. President Lyndon B. Johnson proclaimed Father’s Day a public holiday in 1966, while eight years later he was officially celebrated on a date determined by councilors.

Why is Father's Day in Poland celebrated only from 1965?
In earlier years, the role of the father in raising children was underestimated. This was caused by the fact that the situation prevailing in the country forced men to fight for the country, many unjustly sentenced prisoners spent many years in prisons, which resulted in the fact that women raised their children alone. After World War II, fathers had the opportunity to play a greater role in creating a family and they deserved it their day of the year.
