July 19, 1910 was the first official “Father’s Day” in the United States, but it wasn’t considered a federal holiday until 1972, when President Nixon signed off on it. “Mother’s Day”, on the other hand, was proclaimed a nationwide holiday 58 years before that by President Woodrow Wilson.
The Great Depression inspired retailers to promote Father’s Day as a “second Christmas” for men, making it a wonderful opportunity to spoil your father with extravagant gifts including neckties, pipes, hats, golf clubs – and shoes.
This wonderful tradition continues today on Sunday June 16th, 2013. It is the day in which we set aside some time to acknowledge the profound impact the special men in our lives have had on our own life’s journey. Your father – or perhaps your grandfather or uncle – helped raise you and influenced the person you’ve become as an adult. He taught you to ride a bike, fix a car, play golf, throw a baseball, and catch a fish (with some success).
But…perhaps what you’ve learned through his example as a result of these shared hobbies is more important.
He taught you to treat others the way you want to be treated.
He taught you how to be a good sport and how to work hard.
And finally, he taught you that how you dress is not only a reflection of who you are, but what you stand for.
