5In 2018, Americans spent a whopping of $15.3 Billion to celebrate Father’s Day, coming in as a distant second to Mother’s Day, where spending reached an astonishing $28 Billion.
The history of Father’s Day shows that this was a holiday to give thanks to the Dads in our lives that struggled to gain momentum. Thankfully, now it is advertised as a day to treat Dad to something special, with either a fancy dinner or cook out, and gifts – either homemade or store bought.
The history of Father’s Day began directly after the implementation of Mother’s Day simply because people recognized the need for the role of fathers to be acknowledged and celebrated. Sixteen percent of single parent households consist of single fathers, and men are doing their fair share when it comes to equal work both inside and outside the home.
Every person who dedicates their lives to raising children deserves recognition and gratitude, so this Father’s Day, make sure you let the Dads in your life know that their work has not gone unnoticed, and that he is loved, appreciated, and celebrated.
