How do you like to spend Father’s Day? At my house, we like to give my husband the day off from yard work or other projects around the house. He really enjoys grilling, so you might catch him smoking a delicious piece of meat with a beer in hand. Hopefully, it is a nice sunny day this year and we can all spend quality time outside.
What is the origin of Father’s Day?
Father’s Day and Mother’s Day were first celebrated early in the 20th century. People started celebrating Mother’s Day as early as 1908 and soon they followed Father’s Day as a complement to the latter. While Father’s Day was founded in 1910 and celebrated each year, it surprisingly did not become a national holiday until 1972. Meanwhile, Mother’s Day had become a national holiday in 1911.

Is Father’s Day always on Sunday?
Yes, Father’s Day is always celebrated on a Sunday and is not a federal holiday. It is specifically the third Sunday in June. Whereas Mother’s Day is celebrated on the second Sunday in May. I always expect Father’s Day to be earlier in June, but being the third Sunday means it could fall late in the month. For example, this year it falls on June 21st. I guess it gives me more time to prepare!

What are good ideas for Father’s Day?
When I think of Father’s Day I tend to picture a tie. In elementary school, it seemed like every year the teachers would have us make a card to give to our dads that always involved a tie. The image stuck in my mind and that’s what I related Father’s Day too. Funnily enough my dad very rarely wore a tie. He was a carpenter, so no suit and tie required! However, I gave him many cards with ties on them hahaha!
Now that I am older and craftier, the possibilities are endless for what I can make for Father’s Day. This year I took our fun Father’s Day SVG file and added it to a beer mug to have my boys gift to my husband. He enjoys a nice glass of beer, so the mug was very fitting for him. I took it up a notch though and used the glass etching technique I did for his Valentine’s whiskey glasses. If you are looking for more ideas, Robin has compiled several excellent suggestions for the DIY/handy dad in your life.
