Did You Know? Countdown to Father’s Day (06/08)

Did You Know?
Facts, Figures & Folklore
About Father’s Day & Fatherhood

June 08 : 11 days till Father’s Day

Did you know that the concept of Father’s Day was first proposed in 1909 by Washingtonian native Mrs. John B. Dodd?

Her inspiration for the holiday was to honor her own father, William Smart, a Civil War veteran and single dad, widowed when his wife died in childbirth with their sixth child.

Father’s Day is 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.” So join our Father’s Day festivities as we present a new “Did You Know?” fact each day as we countdown to Father’s Day on Sunday June 19th!

You might even get some inspiration on original ways to celebrate your dad by reading what the President (AKA Dad-in-Chief) has to say about fathers across America.

Or, if you are looking for ways to get your children involved in celebrating Father’s Day, you will definitely want to check out our collection of dad-inspired crafts and coloring pages. Plus, we have a flush list of gift suggestions, with options to fit any budget.

For a real Father’s Day treat, try winning the way to his heart with one of our super special daddy-friendly recipes. We have everything from sweet treats for breakfast to hero sandwiches for lunch to BBQ with all the fixins’ for dinner.

Are you a fan of famous fathers? Whether it’s TV dads (everyone from Ward Cleaver to Tony Soprano) you like, or real-life celebrity dads you prefer (Brad Pitt, anyone?), we have you covered!

In America (and 53 other countries around the globe), Father’s Day is celebrated on the third Sunday in June. In 2011, we will be toasting our dear dads on June 19st. We look forward to seeing you in the coming days as we gear up for a most special celebration of fatherhood!
