Happy Father's Day Cards
Let your dad know how amazing he is with one of our fantastic Father’s Day cards!
Father's Day is all about honouring your father and or the father figure in your life, and there's no better way to do that than with a Father's day card. That special guy can be anyone from your dad or stepdad to your grand-dad (or pap as I've always called him), uncle, or just someone that has always been like a dad. Sending a Father's day card is an inexpensive way to show just how much you care and appreciate your dad, that person you can look up to and can lean on in times of great need and comfort. Father's day cards are all about celebrating and no matter how great or small the gesture it is your chance to show that number one guy in your life just how much they mean to you. Sometimes it's the simplest things that go a long way, and while many people may make a special effort to visit their loved ones on Father's day, others may simply send a Father's day card with a heartfelt message.
When Is Father's Day?
Father's day always seems so far away, and with the excitement and distraction of summer, it's no surprise that it tends to sneak up on you. Father's Day always falls on a different date each year but it's worth noting that you always need to pick up a Father's day card before the third Sunday of June.
What to write in a Father's Day Card?
So you've chosen your Father's day card and now you're stuck with what to write. Don't feel bad, expressing yourself through written text doesn't come naturally to all of us. Take some time to think about what makes your number one guy special, why do you love him so much and how has he enriched your life? Your Father's day card doesn't have to be an essay, a single line summing up his best quality will do the trick.
Just remember that no one is judging you and whatever you choose to write will be great, after all, it's always the thought that counts.
Where Did Father's Day Come From?
Father's Day was originally founded by Sonora Smart Dodd of Spokane. It has been said that she had the idea whilst listening to a sermon given on Mother's Day back in 1909. Mother's Day at that time was not formally established but it had started to gain momentum. Sonora believed that men also deserved to be recognised for stepping up and assuming the parental role, which was certainly the case in her own life. Having lost her mother to childbirth shortly after the delivery of her 5th child, her father a Civil War veteran raised her and her siblings as a single parent. Sonora wanted to honour him with the same respect and appreciation she would have done her own Mother. With the support of local religious leaders, the first official Father's Day was celebrated on 19th June 1910, which was the same month as her father's birthday - It didn't become a national holiday until 1972.
