BONUS – Random Facts You May Not Know About Father’s Day

  • It’s written as Father’s Day – with the apostrophe after the “R”.  The holiday’s creator wanted it to be Fathers’ Day with the apostrophe after the “S” . . . but Congress put the apostrophe after the “R” when they established it as an official holiday.  (It also aligns with Mother’s Day this way.)
  • It was first proposed by a woman.  A woman from Washington state named Sonora Smart Dodd wanted to create a Mother’s Day for dads.  And because of her, Washington held the first Father’s Day on July 19th, 1910.
  • It didn’t become an official holiday until 1972.  President Nixon was the one who officially declared it a holiday.  Mother’s Day, on the other hand, was made official in 1914.
  • Father’s Day is typically the fourth-most popular holiday for greeting cards . . . behind Christmas, Valentine’s Day, and Mother’s Day.
  • The official flower of Father’s Day is the rose.  And a red rose is supposed to signify that your father is living, while a white rose means he’s passed away.
  • Ties might date back to 221 B.C.  When China’s first emperor and his terracotta army were discovered, each sculpture was wearing a necktie.
  • Only about 50% of all Father’s Day cards are purchased for people’s DADS.  Nearly 15% of Father’s Day cards are purchased for husbands.  Other recipients include grandfathers, sons, brothers, and uncles.
  • Americans are expected to spend a record $22.9 billion on Father’s Day this year.  That’s more than DOUBLE what we spent just 12 years ago.  But that’s still LESS than Mother’s Day, when we spent an estimated $35.7 billion.
  • Dads overwhelmingly view being a parent as an important aspect of their personal identity.  85% of fathers with children under 18 say being a parent is the most or one of the most important aspects of who they are as a person.
