Happy Father’s Day 2012 to each one of our followers who is a dad.

Father’s Day was first observed in 1910 in Spokane, Washington (state). Louise Smart Dodd is given credit for launching the holiday’s observance during those early years. In 1936, the Federal Congreess commissioned a Father’s Day Committee whereby the day became a nationally recognized Holiday.

Today in the United States, Father’s Day is celebrated on the third Sunday in June. Many families use the day to express gratitude and appreciation to their fathers by buying them greeting cards, presents, and meals at favorite restaurants. Many social organizations like churches and schools hold special programs to observe the day. Tulsa Divorce Attorneys
