Just when Mothers Day is over and we took out DH's mother for that day, it is now time to start thinking of Fathers Day gifts. Since I won't be able to take him out, I can order a gift basket for him and he will love it since those gift baskets have nuts, wines, and cheeses. One can also create gift baskets as well.
Now since I am always wondering how holiday traditions get started, I learned that Fathers Day originated with Sonora Dodd when she was listening to a sermon on Mothers Day back in 1909. Her father, William Smart who was also a Civil War veteran was forced to raise his six children alone when his wife died while giving birth to their sixth baby. This all took place in a rural farm in Washinton State.
How is this for a "Did you know"
