A History Lesson

June 4, 2018

Did you know...


Father's Day started gained national attention in 1916. After eight years of small, localized celebrations, President Woodrow Wilson used a telegraph machine in Washington, DC to unfurl a flag 3000 miles away in Spokane, WA.

By 1924, President Calvin Coolidge had pressured states to recognize Father's Day and in 1972 President Nixon made Father's Day an official holiday.

Today, despite proclamations and protestations from dads that they "need nothing", Americans spend more than $1,000,000,00 annually on Father's Day gifts.

Don't listen to Dad, go to bit.ly/MSGC-GiftBaskets and get that guy something he'll love and, more importantly, use.
