Happy Father’s Day!

19 June 2010



Fathers Day banner

Father’s Day is a 100-year-old tradition in the United States. The first observance is believed to have been held on June 19, 1910, through the efforts of Sonora Smart Dodd of Spokane, Washington. After listening to a Mother’s Day sermon at Spokane’s Central Methodist Episcopal Church in 1909, Dodd felt that fatherhood needed recognition too. Spokane is celebrating the Father’s Day Centennial Celebration with a month of events commemorating the day.

If you’re in a quandary about Father’s Day gifts, you could put his favorite baked goodies in a handmade bag inspired by a men’s tie or bowtie. This clever Paper Crave designer shows you how.

Neckties are still the most popular Father’s Day gift. However, with the sluggish economy, sales fell 18 percent in 2009, to 29 million. Revenue fell 16 percent, to $418 million, down from a peak of more than $1 billion in the mid-1990s, when power ties ruled the day. The brief history of the tie traces its development from the 17th century to the present day.

    thanks, 3cota! Did you happen to see Google’s Father’s Day logo? It is made up entirely of men’s ties! So clever. Gosh, I wish I were an artist. This blog would be gorgeous—just like the young man who inspires all the Angels and Honeybees!
