Happy Fathers Day

Happy Fathers Day. 🙂

Roseylinns Reflections

Fathers day was founded in 1910 in Spokane Washington by Ms. Dodd.  After hearing a sermon about Mothers day she told her pastor that Fathers also needed a holiday honoring them.  Originally she picked her own fathers birthday June 5, however the pastor needed more time to prepare a sermon.  So the celebration was scheduled for the third Sunday of the month.  In 1966 President Johnson issued a proclomation honoring fathers and designated the third Sunday in June as Fathers Day.  Fathers Day was made a permanent national holiday in 1972 when President Nixon signed it into law.

Happy Fathers Day!  Have a safe, fun, relaxing, and great day.
