The first Father's Day is thought to have been celebrated on July 5, 1908, in a church in Fairmont, West Virginia, USA. In this regard, a bill was introduced in the American Parliament in 1913 to declare Father's Day a holiday. In 1924, the then American President Calvin Coolidge gave his full support to the bill. Realizing the significance of this day, in 1978, the then President of the United States Lyndon B. Johnson officially declared the third Sunday in June as Father's Day. Six years later, in 1982, President Richard Nixon enacted the law, introducing Father's Day annually.
