DETROIT, June 4, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Flower Delivery Express, a leading online flower delivery company, is reminding everyone that Sunday, June 16 is Father's Day. The traditional role of the father in the family has changed dramatically in western culture over the last 30 years.
With the trend of more moms in the work force; child caring responsibilities are now shared by more fathers than in the past. Also, there are more single dads and stay-at-home dads today. Each year more children are being cared for by their fathers.
The history of Father's Day dates back to the early 20th century in America. Dads everywhere have Sonora Smart Dodd to thank for getting Father's Day started. In 1909, Sonora sat in a church in Spokane, Washington listening to a sermon expounding on the virtues of motherhood. But, as she sat there, she thought about how special her own father was since it was he who raised her after the death of her mother. She saw him as a loving, kind, self-sacrificing, and amazing man and knew that there were many fabulous fathers just like him who deserved their own day to be celebrated. Father's Day has been celebrated annually since 1972 when President Nixon signed the public law that made it permanent.
This year, Flower Delivery Express wants you to spend less time worrying about what gift to give your dad and more time celebrating all the wonderful things he's done for you.
