Father’s Day is the perfect time of year to celebrate the loving and caring men in your life.  Whether it’s your dad, uncle, brother, grandpa—anyone who has been a father figure to you—you want to make sure you express your love and gratitude for him on that third Sunday in June. 

Many men, however, continued to disdain the day. As one historian writes, they “scoffed at the holiday’s sentimental attempts to domesticate manliness with flowers and gift-giving, or they derided the proliferation of such holidays as a commercial gimmick to sell more products–often paid for by the father himself.”

In 1972, in the middle of a hard-fought presidential re-election campaign, Richard Nixon signed a proclamation making Father’s Day a federal holiday at last. Today, economists estimate that Americans spend more than $1 billion each year on Father’s Day gifts.
