Mrs. Sonora Dodd of Spokane, Washington had one special dad. He was a Civil War veteran who raised her and her five siblings after their mother died in childbirth, and Sonora decided she wanted a find a unique way to honor him. The year was 1909 and after listening to a sermon on Mother’s Day, Sonora was determined to make Father’s Day an official holiday as well. On June 19, 1910 the first Father’s Day was observed…in Spokane.
It took some time until the idea caught on nationally. It wasn’t until 1966 that President Lyndon Johnson signed a presidential proclamation declaring the 3rd Sunday of June as Father’s Day.
Today, Father’s Day is celebrated around the world, however on different dates. While England celebrates it on the 3rd Sunday in June, Australia and New Zealand celebrate it on the first Sunday in September, Brazil celebrates it the second Sunday in August, and the Scandinavian countries celebrate it the second Sunday in November!
Father’s Day is a wonderful opportunity to thank your Dad for being Dad. However, it’s sometimes hard to figure out exactly what to get our Dads for Father’s Day. They aren’t always the best at giving us clues about what they’d like to get, so it is so much easier to just play it safe with the traditional “World’s Greatest Dad” mug, golf gear or if your feeling particularly uninspired, a new tie — but surely dear old Dad deserves better than that, right?
That’s why it’s nice to know that Green Smoke® has created the perfect gift for dad. This new Father’s Day Kit comes complete with the Signature Starter Kit (2 e-cig batteries, 5 assorted cartridges, a USB Charger, and a wall adapter), an extra 5-pack of cartridges and a super cool carrying case.
So, if you have a Dad who loves to smoke, why not get him a gift that gives him the freedom to smoke in many non-smoking zones? Finally, a unique Father’s Day gift for your Dad…one that he will actually enjoy using.
