THE WOODLANDS, TX – Surprisingly, Father’s Day is only two years younger than its counterpart for moms. Mother’s Day originated in 1908 by Anna Jarvis, and two years later, a woman named Sonora Smart Dodd heard about it and wanted to do a similar annual celebration for dads. Unlike Mother’s Day, however, it took about twenty years for Father’s Day to catch on with the general populace, and it wasn’t even signed into law as a recognized holiday until 1972 by President Nixon.

Father’s Day is the fourth most popular holiday for greeting cards, behind Christmas, Valentine’s Day, and Mother’s Day, barely edging out Easter in fifth place. Unlike the traditional Mother’s Day gifts of flowers and jewelry (and homemade ‘chore coupons’ for the cash-strapped kids), a necktie is the most commonly purchased item of clothing for a Father’s Day gift. Slightly more popular gift choices that aren’t worn around the neck or electronic gadgets, dining out, and gift cards.

While most dads are resigned to receive another out-of-fashion necktie, a bar of soap-on-a-rope, or a VISA gift card, you have multiple – and far more fun and original – options to celebrate the man who sired you by accessing our Woodlands Online Father’s Day Guide.
