SALT LAKE CITY– Father’s Day is this Sunday, June 15, 2014.
Even though it’s not quite as commercialized as Mother’s Day, it’s still a pretty big holiday for the estimated 70 million dads in the United States. According to CNN, Father’s Day is the fourth-largest card-sending occasion with 87 million cards given every year.
So what happens when you don’t have a father to celebrate with? Maybe your dad is deceased or no longer in the picture. Hallmark has decided to address these situations by offering cards for moms for Father’s Day (and cards for dads on Mother’s Day).
In a statement on Hallmark’s website, the card company said, “For years, consumers have expressed a desire for cards that specifically acknowledge the role of a single mother on Father’s Day, as well as the reverse – cards for single dads on Mother’s Day – and cards to honor other people (neighbors, coaches, aunts and uncles, etc.) in someone’s life on Mother’s Day and Father’s Day. Hallmark has offered choices appropriate to these situations for the past several years, available in multiple card lines.”
