 "A father carries pictures where his money used to be."

Poor Dad! He rarely gets the recognition he so richly deserves! Although the United States is credited with establishing Dad's special day, the holiday did not even receive official recognition by our Federal government until 1972 when Richard Nixon signed it into law. Dates for Father's Day celebrations vary around the world and while the majority coincide with our holiday, others take place in August, September and even December. Reliable statistics show that although more phone calls are made on Mother's Day, Father's Day is credited with more collect phone calls than any other day of the year! 

Historians credit Sonora Smart Dodd of Creston, Washington with the establishment of a special day to honor fathers.  Inspired by the first  Mother's Day festivities in 1905, Ms. Dodd sought to pay tribute to her father, William Jackson Smart, a Civil War veteran who single-handedly raised six children on his own.  This year, Father's Day falls on Sunday, June 19th, the same day as the first Father's Day celebration in 1910.

While a new tie might be the first thought for a Father's Day gift, recent trends favor power tools, sporting event tickets and electronics.  At One Cup Connection, we ask why not give Dad his very own Keurig brewer? Our Coupon Code B145 special is sure to bring a smile to Dad's face with all the available great K-Cup flavors to choose from and a superior Keurig brewer that Dad will appreciate almost as much as you appreciate him!
