Father's Day
Father's Day (the third Sunday in June) does not generate nearly as much fuss as Mother's Day, although, like Mother's Day, it is an official public holiday.

Similar to Mother's Day, Father's Day is the day to have dinner with “Dad,” and to give typically masculine gifts: clothing, tools, household gadgets, and sporting goods. A long-time icon in American culture was the purchase of a necktie as a gift for Father's Day, when these items of clothing were more widely worn by American men. Retail establishments hold “Father's Day sales” at this time.
