How Father’s Day started…
Washington State celebrated the nations’ first statewide Father’s Day on July 19, 1910. Slowly, the holiday spread. In 1916, President Woodrow Wilson honored the day by using telegraph signals to unfurl the flag in Spokane when he pressed a button in Washington, DC. In 1924, President Calvin Coolidge urged state governments to observe Father’s Day. During the 1920s and 1930s, a movement arose to scrap Mother’s Day and Father’s Day altogether in honor of a single holiday, Parents’ Day. Paradoxically, however, the Depression derailed this effort to combine and de-commercialize the holidays. Struggling retailers and advertisers redoubled their efforts to make Father’s Day a “second Christmas” for men, promoting goods such as neckties, hats, socks, pipes and tobacco, gulf clubs and other sporting goods and greeting cards.
When World War II began, advertisers began to argue that celebrating Father’s Day was a way to honor American troops and to support the war effort. By the end of the war, Father’s Day may not have been a federal holiday but it was a national institution.
In 1972, in the middle of a presidential re-election campaign, Richard Nixon signed a proclamation making Father’s Day a federal holiday at last.
