Father’s Day is a time to show love and appreciation for all the amazing men we call Dad. I think most would agree that every day is a good day to show our dad’s how much they mean to us. Father’s come in all shapes, sizes, and relationships. Some are biological, while others stand in and take that role.
On July 19, 1910, the governor of the U.S. state of Washington proclaimed the nation’s first “Father’s Day.” However, it was not until 1972, 58 years after President Woodrow Wilson made Mother’s Day official, that the day became a nationwide holiday in the United States.
It took a while for Father’s Day to get traction as many did not see the viability in for commercial reasons. Regardless of the origins or intent to have a Father’s Day or Mother’s Day as designated holiday, acknowledging what our parents have done and do for us is a great idea. Being a parent is one of the hardest jobs in the world. It’s a lifetime commitment of love and support and that is 24/7 every day. Besides showing your dad a lot of love this Father’s Day – the next big question is what to get your dad? Some great thoughts and ideas just came out on this article on Business Insider:
