About Fathers’ Day

The modern Fathers’ Day origin is believed to have come from the U.S. – some say it was first celebrated in Washington on June 19, 1910, while others believe it was celebrated in West Virginia on July 5, 1908. Regardless, the popularity of Fathers’ Day has spread to countries such as Mexico.
