Father’s Day is only 3 weeks away so it is time to think what special gift you can give to your dad. Father’s Day started in the USA in 1910. This was in response of Mother’s Day being launched in the previous year (1909). It took many years to gain acceptance and it wasn’t until the late 1970’s and early 1980’s that it became a day celebrated by the majority of households. The reluctance for many years was due to scepticism that the day was only introduced to boost sales of retail outlets – Mother’s Day had proved to be a big hit each year right from the start.

In Australia Father’s Day is on Sunday 2nd September 2012. It is easy to remember when it will be as it always falls on the first Sunday in September.
