Unlike Mother’s Day, which is celebrated every year on May 10th in Mexico, Father’s Day does not have a fixed date.

When is Father’s Day 2024 in Mexico?

In Mexico, Father’s Day is celebrated on the third Sunday in June, a tradition that differs from the date observed in other countries. For 2024, Father’s Day in Mexico will fall on June 16th. This date was chosen to honor Mexican fathers and recognize their role within the family, promoting unity and appreciation for paternal figures.

Who invented Father’s Day?

The idea of celebrating Father’s Day is attributed to Sonora Smart Dodd, an American woman inspired by the love and effort of her widowed father, William Jackson Smart. She wanted to dedicate a day to honor fathers, similar to how mothers are celebrated on Mother’s Day. Her father had raised Sonora and her siblings alone after his wife passed away, showing great dedication and sacrifice.

Sonora proposed the idea in 1909 in Spokane, Washington, and the first Father’s Day celebration took place on June 19, 1910, in that city. Although the idea was not initially adopted nationally in the United States, Dodd’s persistence and support from various local and national entities led President Richard Nixon to officially establish the third Sunday in June as Father’s Day in the United States in 1972.
