On Mother's Day, many families celebrate with breakfast in bed for Mom (made by the kids), homemade cards and flowers planted at school and brought home in a little styrofoam coffee cup, and brunch or dinner at a fancy establishment where there are tablecloths and real silverware. Then Father's Day rolls around. School's out, so there won't be a homemade card from the kids or a gift made in art class. And you don't see many restaurants offering Father's Day specials.
What's your family's custom for celebrating Father's Day? How do you show Dad how much he means to you?
