Impress your father or husband this year by presenting him with an awesome gift from Everything Etched, and by dropping some Father’s Day knowledge on him as well!

  1. The “Mother of Father’s Day” is Sonora Louise Smart Dodd of Spokane, Washington. Dodd wanted to honor her Father who raised six children on his own after her mother died giving birth.
  2. In 1910, the first Father’s Day celebration was held in Spokane, Washington on June 19 th. This was also the anniversary of William Jackson Smart’s birthday, who was Sonora’s father.
  3. The 30 th President of the United States, Calvin Coolidge, recommended that Father’s Day become a national holiday. Unfortunately, no action was taken.
  4. Father’s Day finally became a permanent national holiday in the United States when President Nixon signed it into law in 1972.
  5. Did you know there is an official flower for Father’s Day? Traditionally, roses should be given to fathers. If you wish to wear a rose to honor your Father on the holiday, you should wear a red rose to celebrate his long and healthy life.  You should wear a white rose in remembrance, if your Father has passed away.
  6. There are more than 70.1 million fathers in the U.S. Roughly 1/3 of them are married with kids under 18.
  7. More than 214,000 of those fathers are stay-at-home dads.
  8. Two million of all the fathers in the U.S. are single
  9. After Christmas, Valentine’s Day, and Mother’s Day, Father’s Day is the fourth-biggest day for sending greeting cards.

  11. In 2015, spending on Father’s Day reached roughly $12.7 billion, with the average person spending about $116 on presents.
  12. However, the amount spent on Father’s Day is still less than what we spent on Mother’s Day. That amount is approximately $21 billion.
