dad-countdown09Father’s Day
A day of commemoration and celebration of Dad. It is a day to not only honor your father, but all men who have acted as a father figure in your life – whether as Stepfathers, Uncles, Grandfathers, or “Big Brothers.”

It is a time of burnt toast and breakfast in bed, family gatherings, crayon scribbled “I Love You”s and, of course, that lovely new tie!

And on this very special day – Holidays on the Net is happy to invite you to our special Father’s Day celebration. Come join us as we celebrate dear old dads and let them know just how much they mean to us.

You can refresh your memory about the history of Father’s Day, test your dad trivia (Quick: How many dads are there in America?), and read some inspirational quotes about fatherhood. Or take a trip with us down memory lane as we recount your favorite TV dads (Are you more a fan of the Homer Simpson dads or the Ward Cleaver fathers?). If real-life celebrity dads are more your speed, then you’ll love our story on the Top Celebrity Dads.

And its not too late to get your kids involved in planning for Father’s Day. Check out our collection of crafts and coloring pages. We’ve also got a robust list of gift suggestions suitable for any budget. And since the way to a man’s heart is through his stomach (or so goes the saying), we’ve put together an impressive collection of Father’s Day recipes — from sweet treats for breakfast to Hero sandwiches for lunch to BBQ with all the fixins’ for dinner.

We look forward to celebrating this special day together with you. Here’s to our dads!

Its Summertime, Summertime, Sum Sum Summertime!

In the summertime when the weather is hot
You can stretch right up and touch the sky
When the weather’s fine
You got women, you got women on your mind

Summer arrives today at 1:45AM EDT.
(And its the first day of Winter in the Southern Hemisphere!)

If her daddy’s rich take her out for a meal
If her daddy’s poor just do what you feel
Speed along the lane
Do a ton or a ton an’ twenty-five
When the sun goes down
You can make it, make it good in a lay-by
