Let It Go Day
Free yourself from all negative thoughts and worries. Its time to let them go and allow the positive into your life in order to heal yourself.

If July 4th Lands on a Weekend?

Monday, June 22nd, 2009

Since July 4th falls on a Saturday this year, we’ve gotten emails asking what is the policy about getting the Friday before (July 3rd) off from work.

According to Wikipedia, Federal employees should get the 3rd off. But for state/local and private business employees its at their employers discretion.

From Wikipedia: Federal Holidays

If a holiday falls on a Saturday it is celebrated the preceding Friday; if a holiday falls on a Sunday it is celebrated the following Monday. Most, but not all, states and most private businesses also observe a Sunday holiday on the following Monday. It is less common, however, for a state or private business to observe a Saturday holiday on the preceding Friday. Some states and private businesses may observe it then, a few may observe it on Monday, and some may not observe the holiday at all in those years. In particular, banks that close on Saturdays do not observe a holiday when it falls on Saturday.

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!
