Celebrating Father's Day


 

From Mother's Day all the way though Labor Day weekend, the summer is ripe with opportunities to celebrate during the warm summer months.

Father's Day is the next holiday on the calendar and we at KARE would like to extend all the best to all the father's who take the time to make a real difference in their family's lives.

If reading this article is reminding you that Father's Day is coming up, don't worry, you still have plenty of time to plan something special. 

Remember that Father's Day in the United States always falls on the third Sunday in June.  The day is held on various dates across the world and different regions maintain their own traditions of honoring fatherhood.

Father's Day in the US was first created back in 1910 to support for a male equivalent for Mother's Day.  Over the decades, the meaning of Father's Day changed and evolved from it being commercialized to stimulate the economy, to remembering the troops. 

During the 1920's and 1930's there was a movement to combine both Mother's Day and Father's Day into one holiday called Parent's Day.  It wasn't until 1972 that President Nixon made Father's Day a national holiday.
