Thinking of You
Dad: 100 Years of Celebrating Fathers
It was only one-hundred years ago, during a 1909 sermon in
, that the idea of Father’s Day was
born. A young woman, inspired to find a new way to say “thank you” to a very
special man in her life, decided that the best way to show her gratitude was by
setting aside an entire day, Father’s Day! The country followed suit, and
now pays tribute to fathers with one special day set aside for Dad each year.
