La festividad de San José (Padrede Jesús) o el Día del padre nació en Estados Unidos hace 102 años de la manode Sonora Smart Dodd, una hija muyorgullosa de su padre que quiso homenajearle con un día en el que se recordasela importancia de su progenitor. Para ella, su padre era como un héroe moderno,un hombre valeroso, cariñoso y desinteresado que había realizado todo tipo desacrificios para sacar adelante a su familia.

 

Dodd entonces comenzó una campañapromoviendo la idea de celebrarlo el primer domingo de junio, día delcumpleaños de su padre. Al principio, algunos se lo tomaron a risa, pero suinsistencia logró su cometido. Finalmente,el primer día del padre se celebró el 19 de junio de 1910, en Spokane,Washington.

Años más tarde, la idea seexpandió por muchas ciudades y estados norteamericanos logrando queen 1924 el presidente Calvin Coolidge convirtiera el día del padre en unacelebración nacional.
