I wonder what's the origin of Father's Day?  In Australia, Father's Day is the first Sunday in September, so are there different origins in different countries?

Google answers:

"The idea of a special day to honor fathers and celebrate fatherhood was introduced from the United States. There, a woman called Sonora Smart Dodd was inspired by the American Mother's Day celebrations to plan a day to honor fathers. In the USA, Father's Day has been celebrated in June since 1910. The celebrations in the United Kingdom and other countries are thought to have been inspired by the American custom of Father's Day. This is in contrast to Mother's Day, which has a very different history in the United States and the United Kingdom." http://www.timeanddate.com/holidays/common/father-day
