Happy Father’s Day

This Sunday we celebrate those who held the hand of those that brought us into the world. This Sunday we celebrate Father’s Day!

And while Mother’s Day has a long and storied history, Father’s day was simply introduced to compete with complement Mother’s Day. The first recorded Father’s Day was celebrated on July 5, 1908 in West Virginia and was actually done in remembrance  of the more than 200 fathers who were killed in a local mining disaster.

The holiday enjoyed mixed exposure as congress repeatedly shut down attempts by President Coolage and Senator Margaret Chase Smith to make the day a national holiday until President Nixon signed it into law in 1972.   

Today, the holiday is celebrated around the world, mostly on the third Sunday of May, and we at Popcorn Palace would like to wish all the Dad’s out there a Happy Father’s Day!
