We choose some awesome Fathers Day Custom Gifts and we are eager to share it with you. But, first, some history lesson 😀
Like Mother’s Day, the modern American version of Father’s Day has a history that goes well beyond greeting cards.
The first known Father’s Day service occurred at the Williams Memorial Methodist Episcopal Church South in Fairmont, West Virginia, on July 5, 1908. Thanks to the efforts of Grace Golden Clayton. Mrs. Clayton had asked her pastor, Dr. R. Thomas Webb, if a Sunday service could be held to honor fathers. While missing her own dad, who had died in 1896, Mrs. Clayton especially wanted to have a service in remembrance of the over 200 fathers who had died in the Monongah mining explosion.
In spite of widespread support, Father’s Day did not become a permanent national holiday for many years. The first bill was introduced in Congress in 1913, but in spite of encouragement by President Woodrow Wilson, it did not pass
in 1972, President Richard Nixon signed a law for Father’s Day. Since then, we celebrate it annually on the third Sunday in June. Ever since, it has been an official, permanent national holiday.
