Father’s Day celebration among Indians in Hong Kong

It is believed that the Father’s Day celebration was started by Sonora Smart Dodd, who was born in Sebastian County, Arkansas in 1982. She, along with her 5 brothers, were raised by her father William Smart after her mother died when she was only 16. To honor her father, she started Father’s Day celebration to mark his birthday on June 6th, that later pushed to June 19th.

Since middle age, the Catholic countries started Father’s Day on March 19th (Saint Joseph’s Day) to honor fathers and celebrate fatherhood and parental bonds in the society.
