With Father’s Day upon us, have you ever wondered What to Write in a Father’s Day Card? Once a year we celebrate Father’s Day on the third Sunday in June.
For many families, it’s all about traditions. A favorite meal is served. Dad gets a pass from chores for the week. Perhaps there’s a family golf outing or Dad golfs with some friends — with no complaints from others. Father’s Day came about in 1910, two years after Mother’s Day. A single father who raised six children was celebrated at a YMCA in Spokane, Washington.
Traditional gifts for Father’s day include a tie, socks, a book, a golf club, shirts, candy, and more. By the time a father has kids old enough to buy gifts, he might have many of the necessities met, so buying a gift for him can be a challenge. Brookstone, the mall store with unique gifts, was apparently developed with Father’s Day in mind. Any great gift needs to be accompanied by a Father’s Day Card. Then the true challenge begins.
