There are over seventy million fathers in America, so it should come as no surprise that it brings in over $1 billion in retail sales, every year.There are those who believe all the credit of Father's Day becoming a holiday, should be given to American retailers.

The start of World War II made celebrating Father's Day as a way to support the war effort and honor our American soldiers. What started out as a national institution eventually became a federal holiday in 1972 when President Nixon signed a proclamation making it an official holiday.
