In honor of Father’s Day, which falls on June 17th this year, we found some interesting history. There are actually two versions of how Father’s Day began in the United States. One includes a Spokane, Washington woman who wanted to honor her own father, a civil war veteran who raised six children on his own after his wife passed away. The other version tells a story of a mining explosion in West Virginia that led to a small church honoring the thousand children left fatherless from the tragedy. In both stories, however, nothing was made official or national until 1966, when Lyndon B. Johnson declared the third Sunday in June to be the official day to celebrate Father’s Day. Richard Nixon followed up in 1972 by declaring the day a National Holiday. At Julia’s Florist, we are happy to honor fathers throughout history and everyday with our wide selection of gifts and plants. Read More about A Divine Dish Garden For Dad »
