Father's Day was established in the United States in the early 1910s. Its creator was Sonora Smart Dodd, whose father raised six children by himself. She thought that there should be a holiday that honors fathers to complement Mother's Day. Father's Day in the United States became an official nationwide celebration in 1972.
Over the years, many countries have followed suit and established their own Father's Day. The officially recognized date of the holiday varies from country to country, in most countries it is not a public holiday.
It is unclear why June 23 was set aside for Father's Day celebration in Nicaragua and Poland. It is most likely a coincidence that these countries celebrate the holiday on the same day. Father's Day is a public holiday in neither of these states.Remind me with Google Calendar
