Some Trivia and Gift Suggestions

image: google
Father's Day is this Sunday. Are you
READY???
As we know--Father's Day is the third
Sunday in June. The US and many
other countries celebrate in June, some
at other times.
This is a day that we celebrate Fathers,
fatherhood, paternal bonds and the
influences of Fathers in society. We
can also recognize those men that
aren't biologically connected to
us BUT play important roles in our
lives.
After many attempts by others, the first
Presidential proclamation for Father's
Day was made by--President Lyndon B.
Johnson in 1966. This proclamation
designated the third Sunday in June as
FATHER'S DAY! Six years later, the day
became a national holiday when President
Nixon signed it into law. Whew!
