According to Hallmark, Father’s Day is the fourth-largest card-sending holiday in the United States. Approximately 94 million cards are exchanged each June. About half of those are purchased for dads. (How appropriate!) 15% are given to husbands. And the rest go to grandfathers, sons, brothers, uncles, or “someone special.”

The two top-selling kinds of Father’s Day cards are “Dad from Daughter” cards and those from a couple or family group. Humorous cards are also very popular, accounting for 30% of sales.

The other top card-sending holidays are Christmas (1.6 billion; including box sets), Valentine’s Day (144 million; not including classroom valentines), and Mother’s Day (133 million).

We think it’s interesting that 39 million more cards are purchased for Mother’s Day than for Father’s Day. What’s up with that?

So, what about you SodaHeads? Did you give someone a Father’s Day card this year?

    One for my daddy. Yes, I call him that and I call my mother "mum." Anyway, I usually like the long sweet cards that are poetic, but my father doesn't so I got him one of a stick-figure running down the stairs from a fire and it said something like "life wouldn't be as fun..." yadda yadda yadda I forgot the rest, but you get the picture.

    I bought one that was completely empty inside and wrote about how he's a great father. I also mentioned about how he deserves a break and hug. I filled the entire page plus half of the next one.

    I bought one for my step father - he's the best dad I could ask for.
    I also helped my 3 kids make one each for their dad.

    Well, actually I sent an ecard on the day and am going to buy a belated one tomorrow, when I'm recovered. Didn't realize it had come around again as it's celebrated on a different day here in Sweden, and I'm not settled in yet!

    My Mom had to be both parents. She & the man who helped make me have both passed. I did wish my Mom a Happy Father's Day though :)
