The History of FATHER's DAY...

Just as the saying goes that behind every great man there is a great woman, the inspiration behind the celebration of a Father's Day is owed in part to its slightly earlier counterpart, Mother's Day. Mother's Day was just beginning to gather widespread attention in the United States in 1909, when Sonora Louise Smart Dodd, of Spokane, Washington, heard a sermon on the merits of setting aside a day to honor one's mother. It gave her the idea to petition for a day to honor fathers, and in particular, her own father, William Jackson Smart, who had raised her and her five siblings by himself, after her mother died in childbirth.

With support from the Spokane Ministerial Association and the YMCA, her efforts paid off, and on June 19, 1910, the first Father's Day was celebrated in Spokane. The rose was selected as the official Father's Day flower, and some suggest that people wear a white rose to honor a father who is deceased, and a red one for a father who is living. In 1972, Richard Nixon signed a presidential proclamation declaring the third Sunday of June as Father's Day.

Today, we remember our Dad on Father's Day by doing the simplest things for him such as taking him out to dinner, giving him a greeting card or sending him thoughtful presents like a shirt or a necktie. But this year, why not go the extra mile by cooking something really special for him? Try some of Lutongbahay.com’s sumptuous recipes that will surely be a special treat for him. Prepare a Spicy Seafood Coconut Soup for him then serve him with Chicken Pineapple Fried Rice that goes well with Shrimp Rolls and Rellenong Alimasag. And for dessert, bake an Apple-Raisin Crumble for him. These treats will surely make him feel extra special.

We, at Lutongbahay.com, wish you and your family the happiest, most loving Father’s Day ever!
