JUST FOR SUNDAY: 06/17/12, FATHER’S DAY

Jun 17th, 2012 | By | Category: Senior Moments Blog

There is something in our culture that doesn’t make as big a deal about Father’s Day as do we about Mother’s Day. Father’s Day seems to be lacking in sentimentality, emphasis on remembering Dad. Florists don’t do the land office business of Mother’s Day. Chocolate, while popular, doesn’t come in massively, ribbon wrapped boxes. There is something lacking here.

While Father’s Day, for some, connotes a special day among those who remember their father fondly, it just doesn’t get the “knock it out of the park treatment” of Mother’s Day. For that matter, Father’s Day is probably less celebrated than Memorial Day, July 4 or Labor Day when Dads are front and center presiding over the BBQ.
