Father’s Day IS tomorrow! To all the great, awesome father’s and father’s to be, Happy Father’s Day to you! Now here are some random (and probably useless) father’s day facts!
#1.) It Was First Celebrated Over 100 Years Ago. After Mother’s Day in 1909, a woman in Spokane, Washington named Sonora Smart-Dodd, who was raised by a single father, decided she wanted to pay tribute to him.
–The idea caught on, but it wasn’t recognized as an official U.S. holiday until 1972.
#2.) Father’s Day Is More Satisfying for Dads Than Mother’s Day Is for Moms. That’s according to the University of Massachusetts. One reason is that moms expect to be relieved of chores like cooking and cleaning and that doesn’t always happen.
#3.) Father’s Day Is the Fourth Largest Greeting Card Holiday in the U.S. According to Hallmark, about 90 million cards are exchanged on Father’s day. That’s about $749 million worth!
