Father's Day Candy & Toys
Father's Day giftsAll of our Father's Day candy gifts are available with a free, hand-written gift enclosure card similar to the ones you see at a florist. Enter your message during checkout. And yes, they are really hand-written by one of our candy ladies.

Father's Day, contrary to popular belief, was not established as a holiday to help greeting card companies sell more cards. In fact, when a "father's day" was first proposed there were no Father's Day cards!  [more below]

[continued from above]
A lady by the name of Sonora Dodd, of Washington state, first proposed the idea of a "fathers day" in 1909. She wanted a special day to honor her father, William Smart who was a Civil War veteran and widowed when his wife (Sonora's mother) died in childbirth with their sixth child.

Mr. Smart was left to raise the newborn and his other five children by himself on a rural farm in eastern Washington state. It was after Sonora became an adult that she realized the strength and selflessness her father had shown in raising his children as a single parent.

The first Father's Day was observed on June 19, 1910 in Spokane Washington. At about the same time in various towns and cities across American other people were beginning to celebrate a "fathers day."

In 1924 President Calvin Coolidge supported the idea of a national Father's Day. Finally in 1966 President Lyndon Johnson signed a presidential proclamation declaring the 3rd Sunday of June as Father's Day.
