The world's first Father's Day born in the United States in 1910, was initiated by Mrs. Bruce Dodd who lives in Spokane, Washington, USA. On June 19, 1910, the city of Spokane, Washington, where Mrs. Dodd lived was held the first Father's Day celebration in the world.

Chinese Father's Day
Inspired by the American Father's Day. China also established Father's Day in the Republic of China. In 1945, in order to carry forward and commemorate the indomitable spirit of China, and to commemorate the father who died for the country in the struggle, they set up Father's Day. Because the "father" of Chinese shape is the same as "八八", and its pronunciation is also same as "baba". So the "Declaration" called residents in Shanghai to celebrate the "Eight Eight Fathers' Day" and received a lot of public response. On August 8th, Shanghai residents held a Father's Day event. Father is a healthy person with a safflower and the deceased with white flowers.
