Fathers day SMS: Express your love

Today is Fathers day. Father’s day is observed to honor fathers all over the world. The first Fathers day was observed in June 19, 1910. Every year, 55 countries around the world observe Fathers day on the third Sunday of June while the rest of the countries observe Fathers day on other days.

The Fathers day mainly complements Mothers day which is observed either in May, March, or in April.

In Western countries, many people go for single parent hood. It is quite popular. In addition, there are many families where the kids spend more time with their father than mother as many women earn their livelihood for the family.

The Fathers day involves gift-giving, special dinners to fathers and family oriented activities.

Sonora Smart Dodd of Spokane, Washington first celebrated the Father’s Day. Sonora’s father, Wiliam Smart was a Civil War veteran, who raised his family all alone when Sonora’s mother died giving birth to their sixth child. At that time, Sonora was sixteen years old.

After listening to a surmon at Spokane’s Central Methodist Episcopal Church in 1909, Sonora felt that there should be a day to celebrate father hood. Next year, with the assistance of Reverend Dr. Conrad Bluhm, she took the idea to the Spokane YMCA.

Today, many people are sending SMS to their fathers wishing them happiness. Here are some websites where you would get some nice SMS to send your father:
