Father’s Day is a day honoring fathers and celebrating fatherhood, paternal bonds and the influence of fathers in society. It is celebrated on the third Sunday of June in 52 countries around the world.
Father’s day was slow to catch on compared to the very popular Mother’s day until it became recognized as a national holiday in 1972 when Richard Nixon signed it into law.
I have no idea how the tradition of giving ugly ties started! It has become such a huge part of the Father’s Day tradition that there are contests and even Facebook pages devoted to the topic http://on.fb.me/mjLXIL.
Let me know if you have any ideas on how the ugly tie tradition started or want to share your ugliest tie.
Another Father’s Day idea is to use the Lux Products 20% off coupon for a new programmable TX9000 Touch Screen Thermostat (a popular Dad favorite!): coupon code LUX20SPC at Amazon.com.
