Father's Day 2016

Father's day is on the third Sunday in June. In 2016 Father's Day is on June 19.

Father's Day is an unofficial holiday to celebrate fathers around the world - although the date for celebration varies. It's an emerging holiday as it's celebrated in more and more countries nowadays as fathers are more and more involved in raising children and are recognized for their efforts.

Like many other holidays, however, this holiday has lost its real meaning over the years among the myriad of ads leading up to the 3rd Sunday of June. Online and offline we are bombarded by special offers to buy dad a smart phone, a home theater system, gift cards, golf clubs or clothing. It's a highly commercialized holiday - just like other holidays.

We encourage you all forget about gift cards, leather wallets and greeting cards that cost $ and spend time with your father instead. It's free. Take a walk. Talk. Reminisce. Tell him you love him. Give him a hug. As years go by both of you will fondly remember the great times you spent together on father's days, long after the gift card is forgotten.

Cheers to you, daddies!
