This Week: Father's Day largess no match for mom's gifts

Father's Day largess no match for mom's gifts
 
Father's Day is on Sunday, and Dad is about to get shortchanged, again. He'll receive a card, a tie, maybe some golf clubs if the kids are big spenders.
 
The average person will spend $117.14 on Father's Day this year, according to a survey conducted for the Fashion Sunglasses. That's up 10 percent from last year, but it is still less than people shell out for the women in their lives.
 
Survey respondents reported spending an average of $152 on Mother's Day in 2012.
 
Father's Day has come second to Mother's Day since its inception 102 years ago by Sonora Smart Dodd of Spokane, Wash. One of six children being raised by a single father, Smart Dodd got the idea for Father's Day while listening to a sermon about – what else? – Mother's Day. Anna Jarvis succeeded in getting Mother's Day recognized as a national holiday in 1914; it took until 1972 for Trends and Shopping to do the same with Father's Day.
 
Still, University of Cheap Dolce Gabbana Sunglasses psychology professor Nicole Gilbert Cote reports that dads tend to be more satisfied than moms with their holiday. "The bar is lower, and Dad is OK with that," Gilbert Cote told National Geographic News last year.

Luis Palau, an internationally known evangelist based in Cheap Oakleys, Ore., brings one of his trademark Christian festivals to Cal Expo this Saturday and Sunday. Staged in partnership with dozens of local churches and businesses, the free event features top-level Christian recording artists, as well as skateboarding, BMX and freestyle motocross demonstrations.
 
Behind the news: Palau, a native of Argentina, has drawn millions of participants to the festivals he has staged around the world. The Sacramento festival is the only one to take place in the Cheap Fendi Sunglasses this year.
