Father's Day, its origin
In the case of Spain, the origin of Father's Day is different from that of the United States. Proof of this is how in North America and part of the South of this continent it is celebrated in June, while in the case of the European country it is March 19, day of Saint Joseph, putative father of Jesus Christ and that in the Christian tradition is the parent model to follow.
San José was humble, hardworking and dedicated. Therefore, Professor Manuela Ferrero decided that March 19 would be a good date to congratulate parents for their role in the education of their children. Little by little the initiative of this teacher was extended so much that businesses bet for it and in this date of the calendar they encouraged their clients to thank the work of the parents with a good gift.
A curious story that resembles in some way the origin of Father's Day in the United States. On this occasion, it was a woman named Sonora Smart Dodd who wanted to pay homage to her father on her birthday because she thought that if mothers could have their date on the calendar, men who had children also deserved the same treatment.
Little by little this idea emerged in 1909 was gaining adherents and in 1924 President Calvin Coolidge decided to dedicate a day of the calendar to this holiday dedicated to parents. Later, in 1966, Lyndon Johnson decided to proclaim the third Sunday of each month of June as the day in which families thank this figure for their dedication throughout the year.
