Are you a father? Do you have a father? Have you ever met a father?


If any of the above apply, give them (or yourself) a huge pat on the back because today is
FATHER'S DAY!
Wikipedia wrote:
Father's Day is a celebration honoring fathers and celebrating fatherhood, paternal bonds, and the influence of fathers in society. It is celebrated on the third Sunday of June in many countries and on other days elsewhere.

Father's Day is a celebration of fathers inaugurated in the early twentieth century to complement Mother's Day in celebrating fatherhood and male parenting. Father's Day is celebrated on a variety of dates worldwide and typically involves gift-giving, special dinners to fathers, and family-oriented activities. The first observance of Father's Day actually took place in Fairmont, West Virginia on July 5, 1908. It was organized by Mrs. Grace Golden Clayton, who wanted to celebrate the lives of the 210 fathers who had been lost in the Monongah Mining disaster several months earlier in Monongah, West Virginia, on December 6, 1907.

A bill to accord national recognition of the holiday was introduced in Congress in 1913. In 1916, President Woodrow Wilson went to Spokane to speak in a Father's Day celebration and wanted to make it official, but Congress resisted, fearing that it would become commercialized. US President Calvin Coolidge recommended in 1924 that the day be observed by the nation, but stopped short of issuing a national proclamation. Two earlier attempts to formally recognize the holiday had been defeated by Congress. In 1957, Maine Senator Margaret Chase Smith wrote a proposal accusing Congress of ignoring fathers for 40 years while honoring mothers, thus "[singling] out just one of our two parents". In 1966, President Lyndon B. Johnson issued the first presidential proclamation honoring fathers, designating the third Sunday in June as Father's Day. Six years later, the day was made a permanent national holiday when President Richard Nixon signed it into law in 1972.


I'd post a pic of my 11 month old son, but I don't trust you geese to not photoshop it in ways I care not to think about. Instead, you can all just make your own mental picture of the goofy-ass grin I'm gonna have on my face all day while I celebrate my very first Father's Day as a dad. Yay! :)

    Aw, enjoy your Father's Day!

    I'm estranged from my dad, but I don't really care, so today will be cool anyways.

    Happy Father's Day, forum-dads.

    I bought him whisky and an actual book for when he gets back.

    Not that much more original than a giftcard, really...

  • My dad has to work today so I get his Cubs/Yankees tickets. Which I feel kind of bad about, but my siblings and I got him a laptop and he's spending like, five days fishing so I think he'll be okay. Plus he doesn't have to watch a Cubs game.

    Just like, trade them for Paul McCartney tickets

    They do that at Wrigley, right, you can trade any ticket there for any other ticket also at Wrigley

    This is how business works in my mind

    So not 5 minutes after my OP, my wife carries my son into the room, puts him down and says, "Go say hi to daddy!" He walks over to me, I pick him up and he pukes all over me.

    HAPPY FATHER'S DAY INDEED, SON.

    He's grounded till he's twelve.

    I bought three cigars from the humidor yesterday and smoked a couple of them with my pops last night. Weather permitting, we're going to the driving range later and then cooking some spanish dish.
