by BWW News Desk - Jun 9, 2017

The custom of celebrating fatherhood goes as far back as The Middle Ages. It wasn't until the 20th century that it was introduced here in the US where on June 19th, 1910 there was a local fete at a YMCA in Washington, DC.  Three years later a bill was put forth to Congress to recognize  the holiday but it wasn't until 1966 that President Lyndon B. Johnson issued the first presidential proclamation honoring fathers, designating the third Sunday in June as “Father's Day.”  Six years later, the day was made a permanent national holiday when President Richard Nixon  signed it into law in 1972. Today Father's Day is celebrated around the country with offspring taking the opportunity to thank dads for all that they have done!  (more...)
